New Juco Guidance Counselor 

Seventeen Collegians 
Try For Cheerleaders 

Cheerleaders are still to be cho- 
sen by the Student Council. Seventeen 
people are trying out, six of whom 
probably will be chosen as regular 
cheerleaders when the council is fully 

Those trying out are Kena Lea 
Gilland, Sara Gilbert, Duane Anstine, 
Phyllis Anstine, Jerry Laingor, Janie 
Schell and Bob Nims sophomores; Le- 
la Mclrvin, Arlene Booth, Janice Up- 
son, Phyllis Boyle, Shirley Fearnow, 
Marcia Glass, Sue Lawson, Jerry 
Waggoner, Harry Diamond and To- 
by Wright, freshmen. 

A new project for the Arkansas 
City Junior College this year is its 
first organized guidance program. 
Purpose of this program is to help 
the student individually on any prob- 
lem he might have. 

The guidance committee consists 
of five junior college instructors: 
Miss Henrietta Courtwright, J. Kel- 
sey Day, Allan Maag, Carl Holman, 
and Mrs. Florence Goforth, guidance 
counselor of the junior college, chair- 

Mrs. Goforth has just returned 
to Arkansas City after a year's study 
under terms of a grant by the Ford 
Foundation. She spent half the time 
at Columbia University and the rest 
at the Meninger Foundation at To- 
peka. She is also guidance counselor 
for junior and senior high school stu- 

A helpful phase of the program 
is the information available about 
jobs after college and scholastic re- 
quirements for them. Scholarship in- 
formation and aptitude tests will be 

given to those students who desire 

Some of the future plans of the 
guidance committee include improve- 
ment or orientation procedures for 
new students and preparation of a 
file containing job data, open to stu- 
dents' use. 

Each student is invited to see any 
of the members of the committee 
during the instructors' free hours, 
and Mrs. Goforth in her office, which 
is behind Dean Galle's in the admin- 
istration suite, during third and 
fourth periods daily. 

An older feature of the junior col- 
lege program to assist students is 
the assignment of eight or ten to 
each of a number of faculty members 
as advisor groups. Students may go 
to these faculty members for assis- 
tance in any of their college prob- 
lems, though consultation is not re- 
quired. It is expected that this pro- 
gram will be further developed un- 
der the leadership of the new guid- 
ance committee. 

Juco Clubroom Is 
Developing Into 
Attractive Lounge 

As the Junior College grows, so 
does the club room. Last year when 
the school first opened, the club 
room, located in the basement, was 
nothing more then a bare room with 
four cement walls. 

Today, under the guidance of the 
club room committee, students now 
have a comfortable lounge and rec- 
reation room where juco students 
can play ping pong, pool, listen to 
records, play cards, dance, and have 
the use of pop and candy machines. 

Heading the club room committee 
is Ernie Hartman, chairman, while 
P. M. Johnson is student council ad- 

Since the new juco building was 
constructed, more than $800 have 
been put into the club room. All of 
the money has been earned by the 
students, selling pop and candy at 
the ball games. In addition, during 
the summer a new wall was installed 
by the Board of Education. 

The committee doesn't plan to 
stop now. This year bigger and bet- 
ter plans are in the making. At pres- 
ent negotiations are being made to 
purchase two used pool tables. 

Other plans for the year include 
the purchase of additional furniture 
and recreation equipment such as 
tables, chairs and another ping pong 

College Orchestra 
Is Being Organized 

The new Juco orchestra, conducted 
by Miss Lois McNeil, meets the sec- 
ond hour on Tuesdays and Thursdays 
in the gymnasium building. 

This is Miss McNeil's first year to 
teach at the Arkansas City Junior 
College, and the college's first or- 

Four regular students have en- 
rolled in the orchestra. They are Ai- 
lene McKee, Jim Paris, Donna Win- 
ton, and Delbert Schmitt. Other stu- 
dents are expected to join the group 

"I am hoping for an ensemble. 
Playing an instrument is relaxing 
a swell as educational, so if anyone 
is interested in being in the orchestra 
just come over to the gymnasium 
building and join us," Miss McKee 
said Friday. 

Seymour Seitchick attended the 
state fair at Hutchinson last week- 

Speer Introduces Grid 
Team at Pep Assembly 

A rousing version of "Hold That 
Tiger" by the pep band opened the 
first college pep assembly of the sea- 
son, September 18. On hand were 16 
prospective cheerleaders who led the 
group in several yells. 

Coach W. G. "Bunt" Speer intro- 
duced the members of the football 
team to the assembly between yells. 
Group singing of the Alma Mater 
concluded the assembly. TAC officers 
were in charge.

Hawley, language instructor, has an- 

Anyone now enrolled or previously 
enrolled in French or German may 
join the respective clubs. Member- 
ship and attendance are voluntary. 

Business meetings are conducted 
largely in the foreign language. En- 
tertainment is varied. Games from 
the foreign lands are often played, 
and American games are played, us- 
ing the foreign language. The French 
Club annually holds a Twelfth Night 
party during January and the Ger- 
man Club has a Christmas party. 
The clubs also have picnics in the 

Last year Alan Austin headed the 
German Club and Mary Whaley was 
president of the French Club. 

A Spanish Club will be organized 
if there is sufficient demand for one. 
Requirements for membership are 
the same as for the other language 

Nineteen Vets Enrolled

Six New Instructors 
Meet College Classes 

Six instructors in the Arkansas 
City Junior College met classes here 
for the first time on September 8. 

Two have been teaching in the 
high school but are meeting classes 
in the junior college for the first 
time. Dan Kahler, an English teach- 
er, has taken over Mrs. Nevva Sar- 
tin's position. He remains head bas- 
ketball coach. Mrs. Florence Goforth, 
now the guidance counselor, has pre- 
viously taught salesmanship in the 
senior high school. 

Mrs. Martha Hansen, home econ- 
omics teacher, took the place of Mrs. 
Belle Robertson; Miss Lois McNeil 
is now the orchestra director, Law- 
rence Hansen auto mechanics instruc- 
tor, and Robert Haggart distributive 
education teacher.

Bengals Crush 
Alumni 44-0 
To Even Series 

The Tigers opened the 1953 foot- 
ball season in Ark City with an im- 
pressive 44-0 victory over the Alum- 
ni at Curry Field on Friday eve- 
ning, September 11. In crushing the 
Alumni, the Bengals have evened the 
series at two victories each. 

The large crowd was hardly set- 
tled in their seats when little Lafay- 
ette Norwood intercepted an Alumni 
pass and raced 28 yards to the 12- 
yard line. Bob Williams scored the 
game's first touchdown three plays 
later by crashing over from the 4- 
yard line. 

It was evident from the very be- 
ginning that the Orange and Black 
had too much power for the old 
grads. A few minutes after Williams 
scored the first six-pointer, Don Neal 
broke lose and scampered 42 yards 
for another Tiger touchdown and 
within six minutes the Bengals led 

Midway through the second quar- 
ter, Neal threw a short pass to Nor- 
wood and the Tiger halfback ran 68 
yards for touchdown number three. 
Neal's try for the extra point was 
no good for the third straight time. 
The score remained 18-0 at halftime. 

The Tigers started the second half 
with a bang. On the first play from 
scrimmage, Norwood tore through 
the left side of the line and behind 
excellent blocking raced 69 yards for 
touchdown number four. This time, 
Neal's try for the extra point was 
good and the score mounted to 25-0. 

Five minutes later, Neal burst ov- 
er from the 3-yard line and again 
his try for the extra point failed. 
The score was now 31-0 still in the 
third period. Early in the fourth per- 
iod, the Bengals tallied their sixth 
touchdown on a 57-yard pass play 
which went from Kenneth Weber to 
Linwood Burns. 

With time running out in the final 
quarter, Weber provided the crowd 
with its biggest thrill. The Tiger 
freshman intercepted an Alumni pass 
and ran 85 yards for the game's last 
score. He then passed to Burns for 
the conversion and the final total 
read 44-0. 

The game was sponsored by the 
Arkansas City Quarterback Club, and 
all profits went for the benefit of 
the Juco athletic scholarship fund. 
Jack Mitchell, head football coach 
at Wichita University and former 
Bulldog great, coached the Alumni 
squad while Orlan Coffman, co-orig- 
inator of the Alumni-Juco affair serv- 
ed as team manager. 

While the Tiger backs were hav- 
ing a field day scoring touchdowns, 
the crowd was quick to notice the 
effective line play. Particularly out- 
standing in the Tiger line were C. 
W. Roe, John Cheuvront, Jim Reed, 
Tony Rendulich and Dick Reinking. 

Defending State Champs 
Hold Informal Drills 

Six candidates reported to Coach 
Dan Kahler as the Tigers held their 
first informal basketball practice at 
the V. F. W. gymnasium on Septem- 
ber 14. Practice consisted of shoot- 
ing drills, and only members not on 
the football squad were present. 

Working out were two lettermen 
and four freshmen. The freshmen 
were Howard Gray, Dexter, Dick Leu, 
Belle Plaine; Wayne Seale, Doug- 
lass; and Skip Cleaver, Iola. Sopho- 
mores were Reece Bohannan, Cedar 
Vale and Cy Seitchick, Philadelphia. 

Practice sessions will be held once 
a week for the time being and sev- 
eral other boys are expected to par- 
ticipate. The V.F.W. has extended 
the use of the gym through the cour- 
tesy of Commander Bill Myers.

Tigers Beat 
Garden City 
For 2nd Win 

The Tigers scored their first con- 
ference victory of the young 1953 
gridiron season by downing a rugged 
Garden City team 13-7, at Curry 
Field last Friday evening. 

Holding a 13-0 advantage at half- 
time, the Tigers had to fight off a 
determined crew of Bronc Busters 
in the final quarter. Garden City 
scored a touchdown with only six 
minutes left to play and in the last 
two minutes, had the large crowd of 
Arkansas Cityans holding their 
breath, by throwing long desepra- 
tion passes. 

Little Lafayette Norwood emerged 
as the game's hero with two spark- 
ling touchdown runs of 70 and 29 

Counting the Alumni game, the 
win was the second in a row for the 
Bengals. The Garden City win can be 
attributed to a strong defense. With 
such stalwarts on the Tiger forward 
wall as C. W. Roe, Ernie Hartman, 
John Cheuvront, Dick Reinking and 
Tony Rendulich, the Busters were 
virtually paralyzed on offense. 

Ark City's offense couldn't seem 
to get started either. Other than 
Norwood's two runs, the Tigers only 
other opportunity came in the fourth 
quarter, when they worked the ball 
to Garden's four-yard line, but the 
attack bogged down when three run- 
ning plays failed to net one yard. 

On several occasions Don Neal 
and Bob Williams reeled off nice 
runs. Williams played a brilliant de- 
fensive game, and was in on many 

Don Boyd, Buster quarterback, 

scored Garden's only touchdown on 

an eight-yard run around his own 

left end. Eddie Dater converted the 

extra point. 

The Orange and Black had the edge 
on Garden City as far as statistics 
show. They gained 221 yards rushing 
as compared to he Busters 106. They 
picked up eight first downs to six 
and intercepted three Buster passes. 

Two non-conference frays face the 
Bengal gridmen in the next games. 
Tomorrow the Tigers travel to Fort 
Scott to meet the Greyhounds in a 
non-league game that will start at 
8 p. m. 

The Orange and Black go into to- 
morrow's game with a two-game 
winning streak as a result of their 
victories over the Alumni and Gar- 
den City. The Arks crushed the 
Hounds 52-0 in 1952. 

Next Thursday evening the Ben- 
gals will return to their home prem- 
ises to play the Pittsburg State 
Teachers "B" team. 

In two games thus far, the Tigers 
have scored nine touchdowns while 
holding their opponents to one. 

For tomorrow's game against the 
Greyhounds, Coach Bunt Speer will 
probably have Linwood Burns and 
Jim Reed starting at the end posi- 
tions, Dick Reinking and John Cheuv- 
ront at tackles, Ernie Hartman and 
Max Marsland at guards, and C. W. 
Roe at center. 

In the Tiger backfield, veteran 
quarterback J. C. Louderback will be 
calling the plays. Don Neal and Laf- 
fayette Norwood get the nod at half- 
back, and Bob Williams starts at 

In their first two contests, the 
Bengals have showed superior 
strength on defense, but are lacking 
offensive punch. In last week's game 
against Garden City, the Tigers fail- 
ed to put on one sustained drive. 

Meet Miss Co-Ed 

If you noticed a very attractive 
brunette in the hallways between 
classes, during the first three weeks 
of school, who stands 5 feet 6 inches 
tall and has pretty blue eyes, her 
name is Terry Hodkin. 

Terry comes to Juco from Arkan- 
sas City high school, where she grad- 
uated last spring. She was born in 
A. C. on January 2, 1935. 

Miss Hodkin thinks Juco is very 
different from high school, but sur- 
mises that she will like it much bet- 
ter when she gets used to her new 

Terry likes to dance and see shows. 
Among her favorites are Lawrence 
Welk and his orchestra; Gordon Mac- 
Rae, singer; Blue Moon, her favorite 
song; basketball, best sport; Doris 
Day, actress; and shrimp and french 
fries for best foods. 

She is an active member of the 
Tiger Action Club. 

College faculty members will go to 
El Dorado, Oct. 3, to participate in a 
state junior college conference, held 
at El Dorado Junior College.

Nine To Lead 
School Cheers 

Traditions were broken Wednes- 
day when the student council chose 
nine eheei-leaders instead of the 
regular five. The nine were chosen 
from a group of seventeen who had 
earlier tried out. 

Named were Duane Anstine, Ger- 
aldine Laingor, Robert Nims, and 
Jerry Waggoner from Arkansas City; 
Arlene Booth, Cambridge; Harry 
Diamond, Philadelphia; Marcia Glass, 
Newkirk; Janie Schell, Chilocco; and 
Toby Wright, Newkirk. 

The council appropriated the sum 
of $45 for the additional equipment 
and new uniforms that are needed 
for cheerleaders. 

The student council refrained from 
choosing a leader for the group, 
directing them to elect their own. 
The group named Wright head cheer- 

Three Attractions 
Set for Assemblies 

Three college assembly programs 
have been arranged, to be presented 
through the auspices of the Univers- 
ity of Kansas' Bureau of Lecture and 
Concert Artists, A. E. Maag, adviser 
of the assembly committee, has an- 

Frances Cassard, a singer and lec- 
turer will be here October 23, and on 
March 1 the Royal Scots will present 
a musical program. The third, Jane 
Moultrie and her Straw Hat Theatre, 
as yet has no scheduled date. 

John Cheuvront took a trip to Okla- 
homa City Sept. 30, to get a pair of 
contact lenses. Thursday he wore 
them to school and one of them 
popped out of his eye. The lenses are 
insured, so no money was lost, but 
John did not have the lenses for the 
game Thursday night.

Arkansas City Junior College is 
building a reputation as being the 
number one juco in the State of Kan- 
sas. Students from nine different 
states representing' some fifty high 
schools are partial evidence of the 
truth of the above statement. 

We are proud of our achievements. 
We have a new modern school build- 
ing, an excellent faculty, and have 
produced fine athletic and forensic 

Some of Ark City's achievements 
last year included state championships 
in basketball and tennis, the first 
school annual in eleven years, a school 
newspaper, a school play, the chorus 
making a successful trip to many high 
schools to recruit prospective students, 
and an outstanding forensics team se- 
curing- many first place honors at El 
Dorado at the state meet. 

These are some of the accomplish- 
ments of last year. Long hours of hard 
work were put into these activities 
by faculty and students. This effort 
paid off. 

We, the 1953-54 student body, have 
a lot of work to do this year, to main- 
tain the high standards set forth by 
the students of last year. 

So far this year we haven't given 
our best. Only 60 per cent of the 
freshmen class voted for class offi 
cers. Only a fair percentage at- 
tend the football games, and even 
less support the cheerleaders at the 
games. Less then half the school 
nhoued up for the last assembly. 
We all have to participate and sup- 
port the school activities of they are 
to be successful. If we all get on the 
ball, we can prove to everyone that 
Ark City juco is the very best in 
everything. S. S. 

Future Teachers Group 
Invites New Members 

The C. E. St. John Chapter of the 
Future Teachers of America held its 
first meeting of the 1953-54 school 
year at the residence of Duane An- 
stine, 1315 South A street, on Tues- 
day October 6. 

Anstine was elected president of the 
organization by the members of last 
year's club. 

The F. T. A. is under the sponsor- 
ship of Howard W. Park, instructor 
in education. All students who are in- 
terested in joining the F. T. A. are 
urged to see Mr. Park in room 201. 

Meetings will be held once or twice 
per month, in the homes of various 

To be eligible for membership, one 
must be a registered student of juco 
and have an interest in teaching. 
Fifteen of last year's members are 
now teaching in grade schools 
through the State of Kansas. 

F. T. A. activities other than meet- 
ings include a few banquets, an outing 
once a month, and a float in the Ark- 
alalah parade. 

Main purpose of the F. T. A. is to 
give future teachers a stronger pro- 
fessional atmosphere. 

The future teachers pledge to 
achieve physical vitality, mental vigor, 
moral discrimination, wholesome per- 
sonality, helpfulness, knowledge, and

That tall, dark, and handsome man 
you see stalking the halls of juco, 
is none other than Tony Rendulick. 

He weighs in at 190 pounds, is 6 
feet, 3 inches tall, has brown hair, 
brown eyes, and a big smile for every- 

Tony hails from Pittsburg, Pa. He 
was graduated from Maine high 
school, Chicago, in 1949. 

After spending 3 years, 3 months, 
24 days and 16 hours in the Air Force 
in Texas, Wyoming, and Washington 
D. C. he was discharged in January, 
1952, and then attended Penn State 
College one semester before coming 
to juco. 

Steak on the menu, Tony claims, is 
his favorite meal, and his favorite 
"dish" is Marilyn Monroe. 

Tony likes all sports, favoring foot- 
ball, basketball and baseball. He is 
on the football squad, wearing 82, and 
when basketball season rolls around 
you'll probably see him on the basket- 
hall courts. 

"The people in Arkansas City, are 
nice, friendly, and helpful, and I like 
Junior College", Tony told a TT re- 
porter this week. 

Qualification Tests 
(Jiven at Arkansas City 

Men can now get application forms 
for the November 19, 1953 and April 
22, 1954 College Qualincatiions Tests 
at the Selective Service local boards 
throughout the country. 

The test is a three-hour written ex- 
amination and the results will be sent

The little girl with the big smile 
attending juco this year is Marcia 
Glass of Newkirk. Marcia's cheerful 
personality is a pleasant sight around 
the school. 

Miss Glass is an even 5 feet tall 
and tips the scales at 104 pounds. 
She was born in Winfield on April 
20, 1935, and was graduated from 
high school in Newkirk last spring. 
Marcia and Adolph Hitler were born 
on the same date, historians recall. 

Her opinion is that juco is tops. 
She likes the school and the teachers 
a lot more than she did while in high 

Marcia's favorite subject is Billy 
Grose, a member of the Tiger foot- 
ball team. They are currently en- 
gaged and plan to be married some- 
time in the future. 

Among her other favorites are 
Harry James and his orchestra; the 
song, "You, You, You"; singer, Perry 
Como; sport, football; and foods, 
french fries and shrimp. 


Tiger Tales hopes to introduce to 
students soon the ''Little Man on the 
Campus." That little man is "Worth- 
al", with all his friends, including 
1' rida and Professor Snarf. 

"Little Man on the Campus" is a 
cartoon by Richard N. Bibler. Bibler 
started his cartoon work while a stu- 
dent at the University of Kansas 
eight years ago. His cartoons now ap- 
pear in over 150 college newspapers 
in the United States. 

Bibler draws from the standpoint 
of students and the faculty. Profes- 
sors have "sighted" the cartoons as 
being "too true", Bibler says.

Speaks at Assembly 

The first college lyceum was pre- 
sented in the auditorium September 
23, at 9:45 a.m. by Stefan Osusky, a 
native Czechoslovakian and statesman. 
He was also a twenty year minister 
to Prance. 

Dr. Osusky was introduced to the 
audience by Barbara Miller. 

Dr. Osusky spoke to the group 
about the slave labor camps in Com- 
munist countries. Thousands are sent 
to these camps for political offenses 
and failing to fill an order issued by 
the government. 

He also spoke of the unification of 
East and West Germany. After the 
Soviet Union issued the proclamation 
calling for an increase of production 
without an increase of wages, the 
East Germans began to strike and 
demonstrate on June 17 of this year. 
"Germany", he stated, "is un-naturally 
separated and after this demonstra- 
tion, Germany will never again be 

After Dr. Osusky's main address 
he had a question and answer ses-

College Chorus Is 
Largest Since War; 
Triple Trio Named 

The junior college chorus is the 
largest this year it has been since 
before the war, with 52 members, in- 
cluding those who attend only once a 
week, C. L. Hinchee, director, reports. 

The chorus has exceptional possibil- 
ities, he believes. The year's plans 
for the chorus include participation 
in the "Messiah," several trips such 
as were taken last spring, and some 
type of operetta, "time permitting," 
Hinchee said. 

Those enrolled in chorus this se- 
mester are Lyle Beavers, Arleen Bit- 
tie, Roger Bowser, Phyllis Boyle, 
Dorellis Brown, Joyce Clark, Charles 
Coulter, Vance Dav, Archie Edwards, 
Bill Elrod, Zoe Etta Frambers, Sar- 
ah Gilbert, John Gillespie, Helen

Membership is still open to anyone 
who loves to sing and can carry a 
tune, Mr. Hinchee says. 

A women's "triple trio" has been 
organized. They are Jerry Laingor, 
first soprano, Shirley Powers, first 
soprano, Zoe Etta Frambers, first 
soprano, Joyce Clark, second soprano, 
Barbara Miller, second soprano, Helen 
Green, second soprano, Betty Trent,

School Flag To Fly 

In case you've been losing sleep over 
it, there was a reason for the Tigers' 
Jolly Roger adorning the entrance 
of the juco building last Thursday. 
The Tiger looking out of its fieid of 
black and orange was anticipating 

The dirty-faced boys you see every 
now and then haven't been playing 
in mud holes. They're members of 
the new auto mechanics class, with 
new quarters located in the school 

The auto mechanics class has been 
added to the junior college curriculum 
this semester. The course requires 
15 hours lab and class per week. 

The new class is under the direction 
of Larry Hansen, formerly of Pea- 
body, Kans. Mr. Hansen has an ex- 
tensive background in this field. 

Mr. Hansen received his B. S. in 
Industrial Arts and Education at Ok- 
lahoma A & M and then earned his 
master's degree at Pittsburg State 
Teachers College. He returned to Ok- 
lahoma A & M as an instructor in 
the technical training school, where 
he taught for three semesters. He 
then taught at Northeastern A & M 
Junior College at Miami for two years. 

At one time Mr. Hansen was em- 
ployed with the Reo Sales, Inc., in 
Miami, Okla., and served as head 
diesel mechanic and general truck 

Mr. Hansen is married and has 
two children. He is a veteran of 
W. W. II, having served 32 months 
in the European and Pacific theaters. 

Immediate plans for the class in- 
clude work on cars which are brought 
into the shop by students or anyone 
connected with the school. Cars are 
repaired free of cost, with the ex- 
ception of parts. 

The class has $4,000 worth of equip- 
ment to minipulate. The shop itself 
was reconverted and new lighting 
and interior decorating has been com- 
pleted since school started. 

The shop has the most modern 
tune-up equipment. Among other new 
items it has a precision piston pin 
grinder, front-end alignment equip- 
ment, a wheel balancer, a brake 
riveting machine, valve refacing and 
reseating equipment, a steam cleaner, 
and other general shop tools. 

Sixteen college students are enrolled 
in the class. They are Don Covey, 
Bob Czaplinski, Ted Foote, George 
Lauppe, La Vera Lawless, Dean Misak, 
Don Peters, Delbert Schmidt, Ross 
Sherwood, Gary Smith, George Som- 
mers, James Sphar, Gene Trenary, 
Duane White, Don Trubv. and C. W. 

Thursday night's game with Pitt. 

You can expect to see school colors 
flying on the day of every football or 
basketball game. At game time the old 
bengal moves to Curry Field, above 
the broadcasting booth, where soph- 
omore Bob Lindly drilled a home for 
it with his brace and bit.

Marsland, Guard, 
Scores in 3rd 
Tiger Victory 

The Tigers kept their undefeated 
record intact, marching to an easy 
35-12 victory over Fort Scott on the 
losers' field, September 25. 

In scoring their third straight suc- 
cess, the Bengals played their worst 
game to date. Coach "Bunt" Speer 
expressed dissatisfaction as the Ti- 
gers were penalized eleven times dur- 
ing the contest. Nine times the Tigers 
were offside, often to nullify long 
gains. _ , 

Marcellus Duckett, Wichita Fresh- 
man, scored Ark City's first touch- 
down in the opening quarter, going 
off right tackle and racing 65 yards. 
Duckett, along with Bob Williams, 
was outstanding on offense. The two 
made most of the Tiger yardage 
throughout the evening. 

Early in the second stanza, the 
Bengal's increased their lead to 14-0 
as J. C. Louderback threw a 17-yard 
touchdown pass to Duckett. Before 
the half was over, Ark City scored 
again, with Bob Williams crashing 
over from the 4-yard line. 

Lafayette Norwood scored the Ben- 
gals' fourth six-pointer, going off left 
tackle for nine yards after Max 
Marsland recovered a Greyhound fum- 
ble on their 28-yard line. Marsland 
then tallied the Tiger fifth touchdown 
when he recovered a fumble in the 
end zone. 

Charles Watson had a perfect night 
with extra point conversation, making 
five for five. C. W. Roe, Tiger center, 
played his usual outstanding game on 
both offense and defense. 


Official TAC Emblems 

Are Available at Juco Office 

Official Tiger emblems are now on 
sale in the college office to members 
of the Tiger Action Club, Dorellis 
Brown, president, told club members 
in their meeting September 29. The 
price is a dollar and seventy-five cents. 

"Members are expected to return 
the emblem at the end of their club 
service, and receive in exchange either 
a small replica of the official emblem 
or one dollar in cash," she said. "Small 
'TAC emblems are also available at 
the office at 25 cents each." 

Club members voted to send recom- 
mendation to the Student Council on 
the selection of cheerleaders, includ- 
ing enlargement of the group, insur- 
ance of the choice of men in the group, 
and insurance of the choice of a rep- 
resentative number of out-of-town 
students ;is cheerleaders. 

State Champs in Tennis 
Finally Receive Awards 

After five months, the members of 
the Tiger tennis team finally received 
their medals for winning the state 
championship at El Dorado last May. 
The tokens arrived through the mail 
last week. 

Coach Ray Judd received awards 
for Alan Austin, singles champ; Rich- 
ard Circle, second in singles; and J. C. 
Louderback and Frank Scarth, doubles 

Bengals Rally 
To Humble 
Pittsburg, 26-6 

After trailing for the first time this 
season, the Tigers came from behind 
to defeat the Pittsburg State Teachers 
College "B" team 26-6, to remain 
undefeated in their forth gridiron 
game of the year. 

The Teachers threw a scare into the 
large crowd by pushing the Bengals 
all over Curry Field throughout the 
fi r s t quarter. Fullback Patterson 
scored Pitt's touchdown on an 8-yard 
drive through the center. The try for 
the extra point failed and the Orange 
and Black were behind 6-0. 

Early in the second quarter the en- 
tire complection of the game changed 
within a few quick seconds. Billy 
Grose, Newkii-k freshman, broke loose 
and raced 58 yards for a Tiger touch- 
down. Don Neal then calmly proceeded 
to boot the extra point and the Ben- 
gals never relinquished their lead 

Grose's run provided the spark Ark 
City needed. From then on, Pitts- 
burg was never in the game. Later in 
the second quarter Bob Williams went 
around left end for 12 yards and the 
second Tiger score for the evening. 

In the third quarter, Lafayette Nor- 
wood set up the Bengals' third score 
by scampering 52-yards. He bumped 
out of bounds on the 6-yard line. On 
the very next play, Marcellus Duckett 
took a pitchout from J. C. Louderback 
and tallied around right end. 

On the try for extra point, Pitts- 
burg was completly outsmarted. In- 
stead of kicking, Louderback passed 
to Burns, who was standing all by 
himself in the end zone, score was 
now 20-6. 

The final touchdown came late in 
the third stanza. With the ball resting 
on the 30-yard line, Louderback ran 
to his right and in a porfessional 
manner threw a perfect bullet pass to 
end Jim Reed. 

Tigers To Play 
El Dorado and 

Two important conference games 
face the Tigers within the next six 
days. Tomorrow night the Bengals 
travel to El Dorado to meet the un- 
defeated Grizzlies, and on October 
15 they tangle with Coffeyville, at 
Curry Field. 

Tomorrow's game maybe the most 
important of the season, and to the 
winner may go the state champion- 

Both squads go into the fray with 
undefeated records. Ark City has 
won four straight and El Dorado 
three in a row. Both schools still 
remember last year's basketball bat- 
tles, and long record of rivalry has 
been built-up between the two schools. 

In their four games to date, the 
Tigers have improved rapidly and 
should be at their best tomorrow. 
The Bengals have scored 118 points, 
while holding their opponents to 25. 
Coach "Bunt" Speer's main threat is 
his fast break-away backs. Lafayette 
Norwood, Marcellus Duckett, Billy 
Grose, and Don Neal have the ability 
to break lose and go the entire dis- 
tance in a matter of seconds, as they 
have already proven this season. 

As for power, Bob Williams can 
be depended on to drive with consist- 
ency, as can Jerry Hollembeak. 

In last week's game against Pit- 
tsburg, J. C. Louderback gave a good 
demonstration of passing, and that 
could mean a lot for the El Dorado 

The big Tiger line, led by C. W. 
Roe, can be depended upon to give a 
good performance, but tomorrow will 
be its big test. 

Another factor which may decide 
the El Dorado game is the Tiger 
kicking. So far this season the Orange 
and Black has had excellent kicking 
from Neal, Tony Rendulick, and 
"Chuck" Watson. 

Tiger Rag Salesmen 
Get Drive Under Way 

A concerted drive to contact every 
junior college student about the pur- 
chase of a "Tiger Rag", the junior 
college annual, so the sales goal can 
be attained quickly, is now under way. 

Approximately one-third of the goal 
has been reached. Eighty-seven copies 
have been reserved by a down pay- 
ment by Monday noon, A. E. Maag, 
adviser, announced.

Red Tape 

esays ruriva 


Difficulty in getting necessary pa- 
pers through seems to be the chief 
obstacle for four Korean students who 
are hoping 1 to attend junior college, 
?nd who had planned to be here for 
the fall term, according to Dean K. 
R. Galle. 

Three men and one woman have 
been issued sworn statements of ad- 
mission, to assist them in making ar- 
rangements to come to the United 
States. They are Alice Lee, Ham U 
Jim, Yung Won Kim, and Myang Cho 

Alice Lee was born in Los Angeles, 
and therefore is a citizen of the 
United States. At the time of her 
birth, her father was working for the 
independence of Korea from Japan. 
Miss Lee and her family returned to 
Korea when she was 5. She was grad- 
uated from high school in 1951 and 
entered college in Seoul, and has 
worked as a secretary for some time. 
She has an excellent high school re- 
cord, being second in a class of 112, 
and wishes to major in sociology in 
her college work, and also study 
French. She has been "adopted" by 
the Arkansas City branch of the 
American Association of University 
Women, who will assist her. 

Ham U Jim is a Korean veteran 
who joined the ROK Army in 1950, 
and held the rank of first lieutenant 
at the time of his discharge. He at- 
tended a law college prior to his en- 
listment. He is about 23 or 24 j 

Yung Won Kim and Myang* Cho 
Chyung are both 20 years old, and 
graduated from high school in Seoul 
in 1953. They entered a college of art 
in Seoul National University, but wish 
to attend school in the United States 
because Korean schools are in bad 
shape. They wrote that Juco had be- 
come "famous" to the students of 
their school, but did not explain why. 

"We are doing all we can to help 
hasten the arrival of these students," 
Dean Galle says, "but due to official 
red tape, we can only wait to see how 
things turn out." 

Dick Leu, Margaret Shea 
Head Der Deutsche Verein 

Dick Leu, freshman from Belle 
Plaine, was elected president of Der 
Deutsche Verein, the college German 
club, at the first meeting, held in the 
junior college auditorium, October 13. 
Other officers selected were Margaret 
Shea, vice president and program 
chairman; Barbara Circle, secretary; 
and Bob Lindly, reporter. 

Miss Anne Hawley, language in- 
structor, served refreshments. German 
games were played during the latter 
part of the evening. 

The next meeting will be October 
27, at the home of Sue Lawson, 605 
North C Street. 

Home Ec Group 
Starts Projects 
With Demonstration 

The college food class under the di- 
rection of Mrs. Martha Hansen, has 
started its projects for this semester. 
Girls in the class work in groups on 
cooking theory, marketing, meal plan- 
ning, and the art of serving meals. 

Miss Carol Howell of the Gas Ser- 
vice Company's Home Service Depart- 
ment, demonstrated the use of all the 
stoves in the kitchen, Sept. 26, and 
answered questions concerning the 
operation of the equipment. This dem- 
onstration was an introduction for the 
girls to the bright and shining kitch- 
en of the department. 

The first cooking project for the 
class was undertaken Sept. 28. The 
class prepared a light breakfast. 
Other projects will include more 
breakfast plans and types of food for 
other regular and special meals. 

Mrs. Hansen is one of the new 
teachers in Junior College. She at- 
tended college at Northwestern State, 
Alva, Okla., Colorado Women's Col- 
ledge, and Progressive Music College 
in St. Louis, Mo. She received a 
B. S. degree in Home Economics at 
Northwestern State. Mrs. Hansen 
has taught previously in the Okla- 
homa schools. Among her many acti- 
vities, she finds time for her hobbies 
which include weaving and music.

The game with El Dorado a week 
rgo last Friday is an old story now. 
It's been hashed over and replayed a 
h'-ndred times by everyone from Ark 
' ity who was lucky enough to be in 
the stands at El Dorado that night. 

There was something else in evi- 
dence besides fine football, though, 
and that was the pep and spirit shown 
by Ark City rooters and cheerleaders. 
There were maybe a hundred and fifty 
people from AC at that game, but the 
cheering (especially Toby's new TI- 
GER yell) and enthusiasm was some- 
thing a large crowd could be proud 
of. There seems to be a kind of spirit 
in Juco this year. 

Perhaps responsible for a large 
part of this shot in the arm are the 
new cheerleaders, led by Toby Wright. 
I believe every Jucoer realizes what 
a great crew they are, and I'm proud 
to have had a small part in their se- 

The credit doesn't stop there. The 
students themselves, you, we, are giv- 
ing our school something it may have 
been a little lacking in at other times. 
Would it sound corny if I said, "Keep 
it up?"

Meet Mil* Ca-Cd 

Rapidly becoming one of the most 
popular students in juco is Arlene 
Booth of Cambridge. 

Possessed of long blond hair and 
brown eyes, always neatly dressed, 
her charming personality is ex- 
emplified by a big, warm smile. These 
make Arlene easy to look at and easy 
to talk to. 

Miss Booth is 5 feet 5 inches tall 
and weighs 118 pounds. She was born 
in Cambridge on July 15, 19 34, and 
graduated from high school there in 

Arlene was elected treasurer and 
secretary of the freshmen class. She 
is an active member of the Tiger 
Action Club and is a cheerleader. 

She likes juco very much and thinks 
the people in Ark City are very 

Among her favorites are Jan Gar- 
ber and his orcherstra; Mary Ford, 
the singer; basketball; fried chicken; 
the color green, and Vaya Con Dios, 
a popular song.

Meet M*. Cd 

Everyone, especially the girls, have 
probably noticed a good-looking blonde 
headed guy by the name of Dick Leu 
running around the halls of Juco. 

Dick was born on January 5, 1935, 
in Argonia, Kansas. He towers over 
6 feet, weighs 165 pounds, has blonde 
hair, green eyes, and a very pleasant 

He requires no special food, but his 
favorites include Ava Gardner, the 
actress; Allan Ladd, actor; Frankie 
Laine, singer; the song, "You, You, 
You"; and his hobby is "just sports." 

Dick is a graduate of Belle Plaino 
high school, and he is emphatic in his 
approval of ACJC. He says: "I like 
junior college much better than high 
school, both the teachers and kids." 

A new faculty directory for the 
1953-1954 term was distributed Tues- 
day, October 6. It was printed in the 
school print shop, and contains a list 
of members of the board of education, 
general administration, custodians, 
and teachers, and their addresses. It 
also tells where thev teach.

New Social 
Is Selected 

A college social committee, which 
consists of Dick Leu, Joe Prochaska, 
Janice Upson, Sara Gilbert, Fred 
Wolf, and Donna Harris, was named 
by the Student Council at its October 
7 meeting. The chairman, Barbara 
Circle was elected at the previous 

A new rule regarding attendance at 
after-game socials was adopted. 
Junior College students will be 
admitted to the socials by presenting 
an activity ticket. High school stu- 
dents or alumni will be admitted only 
with a Junior College date. Special 
permission for out-of-town guests not 
considered dates should be obtained 
from either P. M. Johnson or Miss 
Henrietta Courtright, faculty advisors 
of the Council and the Social com- 

A committee was appointed to in- 
vestigate the possibility that parking 
places be painted in order to make 
better use of available parking space. 
This was discussed with Supt. J. J. 
Vineyard and the high school student 
council by Dodie Brown, Tony Ren- 
dulich, and Donna Harris. 

Receptacles are to be placed at both 
doors for the use of smokers, the 
council decided. 

The clubrooms committee reported 
that members of the student body who 
have available hours will be asked to 
contribute time and effort in the care 
of clubrooms. It was reported that a 
new ping pong table is to be bought 
for the girls as soon as funds are 

A rebuilt pool table has been pur- 
chased by the junior college student 
council and is now in use in the school 

The purchase was made from an 
Oklahoma dealer for $350. The old 
pool table will be remodeled by the 
students in the near future.

Distributive Education 
Students Study Problems 
Re!ated To Their Jobs 

Department stores, variety stores, 
filling stations and an insurance 
agency are contributing to the busi- 
ness education of seven college stu- 
dents and three high school seniors 
enrolled in the course in distributive 
education, Robert J. Haggard, co- 
ordinator, has revealed. 

The objective of the distributive 
education class is to train students 
to render better personal service. In 
doing so personality traits are em- 
phasized. In the class students study 
problems that arise in their jobs. They 
also study merchandise information, 
textiles, personalities, display and 
customer service. Eight hours college 
credit are given each semester. Those 
enrolled are Gerry Bartlett, Ailene 
McKee, Darrell Fildes, J. C. Goodman, 
Jack Hale, Gene Fitzgerald, Neale 
Nichols, Bob Cox, Westley Hickey, 
and Warren Jones. 

Mr. Haggard comes to Arkansas 
City from the Stidham, Okla. high 
school. He received his B. S. and M. 
S. degrees at Oklahoma A & M. This 
is his first experience in teaching 
distributive education. He attended 
summer school at Emporia State Tea- 
chers College this summer. Mr. Hag- 
gard is married and has two boys. 

Dramatic Soprano 
To Sing In Assembly 

The first entertainment assembly of 
the year will be staged in the auditor- 
ium at 9:48 a.m., October 23, when 
Miss Frances Cassard will present a 
one-hour program. 

Miss Cassard, a dramatic soprano 
and actress, began studying for her 
aareer at a very early age. She 
studied at the Julliard School of 
Music in New York, the Unior Theo- 
logical Seminary, Columbia Univer- 
sity, Sophia University in Tokyo, and 
was a student under the famed voice 
teacher in Hollywood, Max Reinhardt. 

Miss Cassard has appeared in Wag- 
ner and Verdi operas and the Royal 
Orchestra of Florence. During W. W. 
II she sang to American G.I.'s and 
allied soldiers in 19 countries. In 1947, 
she went to Japan as an Armed 
Forces Music director. She was the 
first foreigner to sing imperial court 
music in the Japanese emperor's home. 

Juco Offers 
Wide Selection 
In Business 

Students who have noticed the com- 
ing events bulletins in the halls have 
probably wondered who has been re- 
sponsible for them. The business 
training department has taken these 
special steps to make announcements 
to all students, and this school ser- 
vice is typical of that offered by stu- 
dents in seven subjects in business 
which are being offered this semester. 

Courses offered are beginning and 
advanced shorthand, beginning and 
advanced typing, introduction to bus- 
iness, accounting, and offices ma- 

Requirements in shorthand are 60 
words per minute for the first se- 
mester, 80 words per minute for the 
second semester, and 100 words per 
minute for the third and fourth, Dale 
Hanson, instructor in business ex- 

Twenty-four students are now en- 
rolled in office practice. Mr. Hanson 
believes the business machines course 
is one of the best business courses 
offered at juco. 

Juco Carpenters 
Tackle Tough Jobs 

Juco carpentry men engaged them- 
selves in a tough project last week. 
The press box at the football field 
was being raised four feet. L. A. 
Chaplin, instructor of carpentry, ex- 
plained that the job was dangerous 
because the balancing process which 
had to be maintained throughout the 

The carpenters have built a tool 
room for the auto mechanics shop. 
They also repaired a table top for 
the college study hall. 

Last year the carpentry depart- 
ment erected a garage on the corner 
of Second Street and Central. Plans 
are being considered for building a 
5-room house for the main carpentry 
project of the year. 

Maag Compliments Freshmen 
On Tiger Rag Pictures 

The freshman class was compli- 
mented by A. E. Maag, adviser of the 
"Tiger Rag", on its cooperation in 
haying their pictures taken. Maag 
said that everyone cooperated by 
dressing nicely and that he was es- 
pecially pleased with the boys who 
wore suits.

In a bitterly fought contest the 
Tigers triumphed over the El Dorado 
Grizzlies 13-12, Oct. 9, to take over 
undisputed possession of first place 
in the state, and remain the only un- 
defeated junior college team in 

An overflow crowd in the El Dor- 
i.d) stadium saw the Bengals win 
their fifth straight g'ame on the 
strenght of a hard-charging line. The 
loss uas El Dorado's first in four 

ihe Orange and Black were first to 
Lreak int.) the s-oring column. Mid- 
\ ; y in the first quarter, Lafayette 
Norwo d l roke 1 >ose and scampered 
45 yards, giving Ark City a 6-0 lead, 
'xhe ti y for extra point by Chuck 
\ -tson was wide. 

The two teams battled evenly for 
the remainder of the period. In the 
second stanza, El Dorado outplayed 
t e benga s but couldn't score and 
the first half ended with Ark City 
leading 0-0. 

Two G al Line Stands 

During the second quarter, the 
Tigers held twice on two brilliant 
goal line stands, within their own 
5-yard line. Both times the center of 
the Ti'i'er line stood out. C. W. Roe, 
Bob Watson, Max Marsland, Bob 
Iiadicke, Al Stewart, Ernie Hartman, 
Dick Keinking, and John Cheuvront 
were all in their clogging up the holes. 

Action speeded up in the third 
quarter. The Grizzlies took the kick- 
off tnd went all the way, with Hayes 
scoring the T. D. on a 45-yard jaunt. 
John Cheuvront then tore through the 
El Dorado line to block the extra 

Ark City retaliated by coming right 
back with the kick-off and going all 
the way. Bob Williams, playing 
practically the entire game with an 
injured leg, did most of the ball carry- 
ing and finally scored the touchdown 
mi a 13-yard run. This time Watson's 
try for the point was good, and the 
Tigers led by 13-6. 

J. C. Louderback was doing an out- 
standing job in directing the Tiger 
offense and his ball handling was 

Fumble Helps Grizzlies 

With six minutes remaining in the 
game, the Grizzlies drove down to 
the Tiger 4-yard line, and once again 
the center of Ark City's line came up 
with a brilliant goal-line stand. 

However a few seconds later El 
Dorado recovered a fumble and scored 
on a short pass to Griffith, and the 
Purple and Gold were back in bus- 

It was now that Ark City received 
the break they needed to clinch the 
victory. On the try for the extra point 
the pass from center was bad and Ark 
City recovered the ball. 





Arkansas City 


Dodge City 



El Dorado 











Garden City 


Conqs Test 





Dodge City and Parsons are the 
next two games on the Tiger schedule 
as the Bengals prepare to defend 
their rating as the number one team 
in the state. 

The Tigers go into tomorrow's game 
against Dodge City on the Conqs' 
field with an undefeated and untied 
record of six straight victories. 

In their six games to date, the 
Tigers have scored 164 points to their 
opponents' 56. They hold victories 
over their Alumni, Garden City, Fort 
Scott, Pittsburg State Teachers Col- 
lege "B", El Dorado, and Coffeyville. 

Should the Tigers win their remain- 
ing four games they have a chance 
to be invited to play in the "Little 
Rose Bowl" at Pasadena, California. 

Coach Bunt Speer will have to have 
his charges up for tomorrow's game. 
The Conqs still have a chance for the 
state championship, but must beat Ark 
City to remain in the running. A big 
rivalry has been built-up between the 
two schools in recent years, and noth- 
ing would be sweeter for Dodge City 
then to knock the Tigers from the 
unbeaten ranks. 

The Orange and Black will be pin- 
ning hopes on the big, rugged line 
and fast, breakaway backs. 

Northeastern A & M Junior College 
of Miami, Okla., has its largest en- 
rollment since 1947, with 650 students 
having started classes, and the total 
expected to reach 675 by last week. 

Northern Oklahoma J. C. of Tonk- 
awa, Okla., shows an enrollment of 
286 students. 

On the final play of the game, El 
Dorado threw a desperation pass, and 
J. C. Louderback intercepted the pass 
and began the best run of the came. 
He went all the way to the Grizzly 
15-yard line for a 65-yard sprint. He 
was hit at least six times. 

A smooth Tiger team drove to its 
sixth straight victory by humbling 
Coffeyville 33-19, at Curry Field, Oc- 
tober 15. 

The Red Ravens were never in the 
ball game, as the Bengals led by 
scores of 7-0, 20-0, 27-0, and 33-7. 

Coach Bunt Speer's team displayed 
its best brand of football this season. 
Downfield blocking was terrific, and 
the Ark City backs ran up 321 yards 
on rushing alone. 

Bengal Line Stars 

As usual, the Tiger line was the 
main factor in the Orange and Black 
win. They opened up big holes on of- 
fense and stopped Coffeyville cold of 
defense until the final five minutes 
of the game, when Speer had his 
third and fourth strings in the game. 

Marcellus Duckett scored Ark City's 
first touchdown by running 26 yards 
after taking a hand-off from J. C. 
Louderback. Don Neal then kicked the 
extra point. 

Neal, who ran brilliantly all even- 
ing, tallied touchdown number two 
by going off right tackle for eight 
yards. Neal also scored the Tiger third 
TD on a 33-yard sprint. 

Lafayette Norwood scored Ark 
City's fourth touchdown on the best 
running play of the game, a 37-yard 
run in which the downfield blocking- 
was magnificent. 

TD number five came on an 85-yard 
march with Billy Grose, Newkirk 
freshman, scoring from the one-yard 

Jerry Hollembeak made his first 
start for the Tigers at fullback, re- 
placing the injured Bob Williams, and 
turned in a commendable performance, 
especially on offense.

NO. 4 

In one of the most interesting coro- 
nations of Arkalalah history, Barbara 
Circle was crowned Queen XXII be- 
fore a capacity crowd of over 3,000 
people at the auditorium last Friday 

As the stage was shrouded in dark- 
ness, the huge crowd sat with tense 
anticipation. When the stage lights 
were turned on Barbara was stand- 
ing on the top step, and Master of 
Ceremonies, Harry Diamond an- 
nounced the new queen. 

Alan Austin, student council pres- 
ident, then proceeded to crown the 
queen with the beautiful rhinestone 
crown. In succession, the queen then 
received the royal sceptor, robe, and 
a bouquet of bronze mums. 

Austin escorted the queen to the 
white satin throne on the east side 
of the stage from where she wit- 
nessed the remainder of the program. 
Her attendants were Dorellis Brown, 
Jerry Laingor, Sara Gilbert, and Peg- 
gy Trent. 

Charles Hinchee was director of 
production, with Allan Maag serving 
as assistant director. Miss Mary Mar- 
garet Williams was in charge of the 
oueens and attendants. K. R. G&lle 
wss in charge of the queens. 

The Junior College participated in 
the giant parade on Saturday. The 
Tiger football team rode on a fire 
engine and the school band, decked 
out in their new uniforms, played 
while riding en a float. More th?n 
31,000 people lined Summit street to 
view the parade. 


Social Committee 
Plans "Pay Party" 

A "pay party" will be held Nov- 
ember 20 in the Junior College 
Auditorium, it has been announced 
by Barbara Circle, social chairman. 
Admission will be 25 cents per per- 
son or 45 cents per couple. This party 
is open to all Junior College and high 
school students. 

Queen Alalah XXII Council Talks 

Parking, Queens 

Two meetings concerning parking 
problems, sponsors of the clubrooms, 
parties, and elections of the queens 
have been held in the past two weeks. 

A committee investigating parking 
spaces around the school building re- 
ported that it had consulted the high 
school student council, the school ad- 
ministration, city manager, and had 
been informed that a marking of 
parking places adjacent to the school 
buildings must be done by school au- 
thorities. The committee plans to con- 
sult further with the superintendent 
of schools. 

The council discussed care and 
cleaning of the college clubroom and 
decided to employ students to scrub 
the floor once each week. President 
Alan Austin announced Wednesday 
that Fred Wilson and John Hitch- 
cock have been employed for the job. 
The clubroom will be closed once each 
week while this task is accomplished. 

Council members voted to arrange 
a schedule for a host or hostess, or 
both to be on duty in the clubroom 
each hour of the day. The clubroom 
committee reported that Leon Fitz- 
gerald, Larry Scarth, and Jerry Hol- 
lembeak had volunteered for service 
during the second, third, fourth, noon, 
and sixth hours, but other host or 
hostess were needed for the first, 
seventh, and eighth hours and for 45 
minutes after classes in the afternoon. 
A clubroom rules committee has not 
yet reported. 

The council voted 7-1 Wednesday 
not to sponsor a football queen this 
season, and unanimously not to spon- 
sor a basketball queen. A discussion 
of a homecoming or sports queen 
reached no conclusion.

A Qaad Band 
Can Be Jfad 

Did anyone get a really good look 
at our band Thursday night? If so, 
you might have noticed who was play- 
ing the trumpets. A. C. J. C. has to 
pull in its alumni to present a band 
at our athletic contest, when there 
should be an organization that would 
make the fans wake up and take 

Director August Trollman has been 
trying to put together a band of 
more than fifteen persons, but so far 
his efforts have been in vain, not only 
in getting more members, but in get- 
ting school spirit to work toward a 

A.C. juco has the best athletic teams 
in the state — but it is not because of 
the pep behind them. These teams 
need support. A good team and a good 
cheering section which isn't too self- 
conscious to yell. Some people think 
yelling is undignified, but those people 
are not dignified anyway, so set out 
there and give it the old "college try." 

Coffeyville puts out a band of more 
than sixty pieces — Ark City puts out 
about one-fourth of that. In my opin- 
ion our juco is far above Coffeyville, 
hut the naked facts cannot be ig- 

After 30 years we finally secured 
uniforms for our band, but there 
is no one to wear them. Who will 
we n r them? — You the students of A.C. 
J.C. If you have a free period and 
can play some instrument, see Mr. 
Trollman and get the facts. 

It will take only one or two hours 

a week to produce a top flight band — 

so let's set out there and be real fans.

Mid-term Grade 
Reports Are Delayed 
By Celebrations 

The reason the mid-term examina- 
tions have been stretched over a 
period of two weeks is due to a de- 
cision at the faculty meeting October 

Ordinarily the mid-term grade cards 
would have been issued during the 
first week of November, but with the 
Arkalalah festival and the state 
teachers meetings intervening the 
faculty decided to issue them on Nov- 
ember 13. 

These grade cards are not a per- 
manent record, but are only a tem- 
porary estimate of work done during 
the first half of the semester. They 
are to show the students the grades 
he has earned in each subject and in 
which subject he needs to improve, 
Dean K. R. Galle pointed out. 

Injured Ping Pong Table 
Repaired By Three Juco Boys 

The original ping pong table long 
used by Junior College students, is 
not in the clubroom this week. It is 
being repaired by Ernie Hartman, Al- 
fred Kloxin, and Roger Bowser. The 
table, which was presented to the 
Junior College over ten years ago by 
Carl Holman, had withstood the wear 
and tear all those years but finally 
broke down when someone sat on it. 
The table will soon be back in the 
clubrooms, almost as good as news, 
thanks to the efforts of the above- 
named members of the carpentry 

Happy birthday to the following: 
Bruce Bittle, Nov. 5, Charles Coulter,

Fred Wilson Entertains 
Students At Pep Assembly 

The pep assembly for the Parsons- 
A. C. game was highlighted by a 
special number by Fred Wilson. Fred 
gave "In The Book" and "sang" a 
musical speech about the Juco Tigers 
and Coaches "Bunt" Speer and Dan 
Kahler. The number was adapted to 
the tune of "Grandma's Lyesoap". 
Toby Wright accompanied Fred at 
the piano. 

The cheerleaders lead the group in 
several school yells. 

TAC members voted that special 
thanks should be given to Marjorie 
Ramsey, vice-president of TAC. She 
is the person who is responsible for 
all of the pep assemblies.

Title At Stake 
In Next Two 


The Tigers bring down the curtain 
of the 1953 football season in the 
next two weeks with two very im- 
portant conference games which will 
decide who wins the state juco foot- 
ball championship. 

Tonight the Bengals travel to 
Independence to meet the Pirates. A 
Tiger victory will mean a tie for first 
place with Dodge City, with both 
teams going into the final week of 
play with the title in the balance. 

On November 14, the Bengals return 
to Curry Field to play Hutchinson. 

In winning seven out of eight games 
this season, the Orange and Black 
have scored 189 points to their oppon- 
ents' 94. 

With Dick Reinking going' into the 
service tomorrow, 14 sophomores will 
be playing their final game for Ark 
City, as the Tigers wind-up the most 
successful gridiron seasons in recent 

Finishing up their football careers 
at Ark City are Jim Reed, John 
Cheuvront, Max Marshland, C. W. 
Roe, Bob Watson, Linwood Burns, 
Lafayette Norwood, Bob Williams, 
Alfred Kloxin, Ernie Hartman, Don 
Neal, J. C. Louderback, Lyman Brown, 
and Bob Hadicke. 


Basketball Squad 
Starts Practice 
With 20 Candidates 

Approximately 20 candidates re- 
ported to Coach Dan Kahler, as the 
Tigers opened basketball drills on 
November 2 at the gymnasium. 

The Bengals have a rough road 
ahead as they prepare to defend the 
state championship. Football players 
trying out for positions will not re- 
port to practice until the gridiron 
season is completed. 

Kahler will try to whip his squad 
into top shape for the opening game 
against the Alumni on Saturday, Nov- 
ember 28. 

The annual Tiger-Alumni game 
figures to be the best yet. Playing 
for the Alumni this year may be Don 
Upson, Bill Clay, Ray Potter, Jerry 
Lavid, and Jackie King, and many 
other stars of recent years.

Tigers Stop 
Parsons, 25-18, 
or 7th Win 

On the rebound, the Tigers bounced 
back into the victory column with a 
25 to 18 win over Parsons juco in a 
non-conference game at Curry Field 
on October 29. 

After a scoreless first quarter, the 
Tigers broke the ice in the second 
period on a 12-yard touchdown pass 
from J. C. Louderback to Linwood 

A few minutes later, Ark City tal- 
lied again with Jerry Hollembeak 
plunging over from the one. Both 
attempts for the extra point failed. 

Midway in the second quarter, Par- 
sons scm-eed two quick touchdowns on 
runs of 35 and 30 yards. The score 
was deadlocked 12 all at halftime. 

The Orange and Black regained the 
lead early in the third with Lafayette 
Norwood racing 35 yards then score- 
ing from the one. This time Neal's 
try for the conversion was good. 

Late in the third stanza, Don Neal 
s"r-red with what proved to be the 
winning touchdown on a brilliant 75- 
yard touchdown run on a return punt. 
As Neal raced down the sidelines, 
C. W. Roe and J. C. Louderback threw 
key blocks to spring Neal loose and 
then Bob Watson threw the final 
blcck permitting him to go all the 
wa v. 

Dodge City Hands 
Tigers First Loss 
In Seven Games 

The Dodge City Conquistadores 
threw a monkey-wrench into the 
Tiger hopes for a state championship, 
by lacing Ark City 20-0 at victors' 
field on Oct. 23. 

In knocking the Bengals from the 
undefeated ranks, the Conqs took over 
first place in the league standings, 
with a 4-1 record, with the Tigers 
right behind on a 3-1 league mark. 

The defeat was the Tigers' first 
in seven games this year. Dodge City 
took advantage of every break and 
turned three Ark City fumbles into 

Early in the opening period, the 
Conqs recovered a Tiger fumble on 
the 37-yard line. After a series of 
running plays Boyd passed to Fitz- 
gerald for a first down on the Tiger 
2-yaid line. On the next play Boyd 
crashed over for the score. 

Later in the first quarter, Dodge 
City tallied again on just about the 
same situtation, a recovered fumble 
deep in AC territory; a completed 
pass, and Boyd crashing over from the 

Dodge City's third touchdown came 
in the final stanza when they re- 
covered another Tiger fumble on the 
Tiger 25-yard line. Three plays later 
Boyd went over from the 13. 

Only once did Ark City even look 
as if they might have scared. Don 
Neil broke lose and raced 25-yards 
only to be caught from behind. 

About the only brie-ht spots for the 
Bengals was the playing of Dick 
Reinking, Fred Howerton, and Neal.

nesday. The class is now making a 
bill of materials and getting esti- 
mates from various lumber yards. 
They hope to be ready to break the 
ground and start the foundation some- 
time next week. 

The house will be built with the 
idea that it can be moved and added 
on to if desired. It will be sold by 
bid when completed. 

A kitchen, dinette area, large liv- 
ing room, one bedroom, and a bath- 
room make up the floor plan, and the 
plumbing will be left to be installed 
as the buyer wishes. The class will 
put in some rough wiring, and will 
make the window and door frames. 

The floors will be of oak and the 
walls of natural wood, ready to be 

The outside is to have a 10-inch 
beveled edge and box corners. The 
roof will be gabled. The primer coat 
of paint will be applied. The over-all 
size of this structure will be 26 by 
30 feet. The class hopes to complete 
the house this year.

We students of A. C. J. C. are ex- 
tremely lucky. We are attending a 
good junior college and must recog- 
nize the duties inherent in school at- 
tendance here. 

Our basement has been, at co'sider- 
able expense and time, turned into a 
recreation room. However, the stu- 
dents as a whole are not taking- 
proper care of it. We should all en- 
deavor to keep it clean and orderly. 
If this is done, I am sure the Student 
Council will install more and better 
furniture and additional recreational 

Secondly, let us examine our school 
spirit. I think the esprit de corps, 
in general, is good. We must consider 
more than athletic spirit alone, and 
sell ourselves and the townspeople 
on the junior college. 

It is a convenient and efficient 
means of obtaning two years of higher 
education. The students will support 
the athletic activities as conditions 
warrant and by that I mean the teams 
must play hard. 

The Student Council will have the 
support of the student body only if 
they take the lead and push the many 
projects in their jurisdiction. More 
leadership should be shown than is 
now evident. 

One more item that deserves atten- 
tion is the area surrounding the front 
door of the building. This area is al- 
ways littered with cigaret stubs and 
I suggest the students learn how to 
tear them up or else put them in a 
waste receptacle.

Tigers meet their rivals from Winfield, 
St. John's. Last year the teams split, 
each winning one. St. John's defeated

Indy Pirates Crush 
Bengal Hopes 7-6 
In Mild Upset: 

The all around fine playing of Don 
Neal just wasn't enough as the Tigers 
lost their golden opportunity to tie 
Dodge City for first place in the state 
standings, and lost to Independence 
7-6, on the victors field, Novemer 4. 

In losing their second game in nine 
starts, the Tigers played one of their 
worst games of the season. Only Neal 
and Jerry Hollembeak seemed to be 
playing up to the usual standard. 

What once was a big rugged line, 
was on an ineffective jrroup of players 
as the Bengal tackling and blocking 
reached a new low. Ball handling was 
also poor, as Ark City backs con- 
stantly fumbled away most of their 
i hances. 

The Timers got G-0 hrlftime lead 
when, with two minutes remaining 
in the first half. J. C. Louderback 
threw a long- 25-yard pass to Don 
Neal, who caught the ball on the run 
and then outran the Independence 
hackfield for 30 more yards and a 

Chuck Watson's try for the extra 
point failed. 

Independence scored their touch- 
down with only two minutes left in 
the third period on a 95-yard march. 
Bill Brunei- climaxed the drive by go- 
ing over from the 1-yard line. Dale 
Smith then kicked the all-important 
extra point, which later proved to be 
the winning margin. 

The Tigers had a fine opportunity 
to win the game in the final minutes 
of play when Don Neal raced 40 
yards to the Pirate 25-yard line. A 
fumble on fourth down with only one 
to go gave Independence the ball and 
the game.

Bengals Upset 
By Hutchinson 

In Final Game 

The Tigers ended the 1953 football 
season on a rather sad note by drop- 
ping a 39-6 decision to what was 
supposed to be an inferior Hutchin- 
son junior college team, on Nov. 13. 

The Bengals were completely out- 
classed in every phase of the game. 
The Blue Dragons picked up 338 yards 
on rushing and 141 on passing. They 
made 18 first downs. Ark City gained 
103 yards on rushing and 83 on pas- 
singand managed to make only 9 
first downs. 

The only bright spot for Ark City 
fans was the outstanding play of 
J. C, Louderback, who engineered the 
Tigers to 6 points while the Dragons 
were picking up 19 during the first 

Hutchinson scored in the opening 
period on a 62-yard pass play from 
Zerger to Lundstrom. Early in the 
second quarter Hampton crashed over 
from the six. Both tries for the extra 
points missed. 

The Tigers came back to score on 
the fine passing and running of Loud- 
erback. J. C. took the kick-off and ran 
it back 25-yards to the Bengal 43. Two 
running plays picked up a first down 
on the 50. 

Duckett then made 15 through left 
tackle and another first down on the 
Hutch 35-yard line. 

Louderback then passed to Jim 
Reed for 5-yards and on fourth and 
five, he ran the ball himself and 
picked up a first down to the Hutch 24. 
Louderback then passed to Howerton 
to the 17. A minute later Hollembeak 
took a hand-off from Louderback and 
scored the T.D. Ark City never scored 

Hutchinson came back to score 
with only 30 seconds remaining in the 
first half. An intercepted pass thrown 
by Ken Weber set the stage. The try 
for the point was successful and the 
Dragons led 19-6 at halftime. 

The second half was a complete 
route as Hutchinson romped up and 
down Curry Field scoring three touch- 
downs. The Tigers ended their season

Korean Girl 
To Enter Juco 
Next Semester 

It now seems very likely that Alice 
Lee of Pusan, Korea, will be attend- 
ing juco for the next semester. 

Miss Lee has been trying to come 
to the United States since last year, 
but government red tape has delayed 
her arrival. She first heard of A. C. 
juco from a pamphlet she had secured 
at a U. S. Information Bureau. 

Alice is 21 years old. She was born 
in Los Angeles and moved with her 
family to Korea when she was 5 years 

In her college work, she plans to 
major in sociology. She is also in- 
terested in French and music. 

The American Association of Uni- 
versity Women's Ark City branch are 
arranging living quarters for Alice, 
and have promised to act as "big- 
sisters" to the Korean student.

Political WviM 
Needi Golleaianl 

A decided lack of interest by col- 
lege students is being exhibited in one 
of the most critical fields of our day — 
governmental leadership. 

Incompetent officials from the na- 
tional government on down-are being- 
replaced; but in many instances the 
replacements are just as incompetent. 

This nation is in dire need of hon- 
est, intelligent, and loyal men and 
women who place the good of the 
country above individual gain. 

If the United States is to maintain 
its standings as the leader of nations, 
the colleges and universities must 
yield these political aspirants. It is 
the duty of the teachers to encourage 
political leaders to enter the field of 
political science; and it is the duty 
of every student to display a greater 
interest in our political society. 

Remember-upon your shoulders rest 
the future of not only this nation but 
of all the nations of the world.

Has anyone noticed a pair of feet 
carrying a guy around who is 5 feet, 
] 1 inches tail, weighs 1GJ pounds, has 
dark brown hair and big brown eyes? 
His name is Howard Gray, and he is 
from Dexter. He is staying at 909 
North First while he goes to school. 

Howard is one of those unlucky — or 
lucky — people who was born on Fri- 
day 13. That was in July of 1935. 
At least he was lucky enough to grad- 
uate last year with the 1953 senior 
class at Dexter and is a freshman 
in junior college this year. 

His list of favorites includes: Mari- 
lyn Monroe, actress; Jerry Lewis, 
actor; Johnny Lee Wills, dance band; 
fried chicken; and color red. Howard 
admits that his hobby is women. 

This is what Howard said about

Amateur Program 

The college assembly committee 
wishes to sponsor a talent show in a 
forthcoming assembly. Members of 
the student body and faculty are in- 
vited to participate, the committee 
announced Monday.

That shared experiences are the 
best methods to create understanding 
which may lead to international peace 
is the belief of Herberto Sein, Mex- 
ican diplomat, who spoke to junior 
college students November 18, in the 
junior college auditorium and in class 

Mr. Sein is sponsored by the Amer- 
ican Friends Service Committee In- 
stitute of International Relations, and 
represents that international Quaker 
group at the United Nations. He at- 
tended the San Francisco conference 
in 1945, and has been associated with 
the UN as an observer or translator 
since its founding. 

Sein expressed the opinion that the 
United States should reduce trade 
barriers instead of giving direct mon- 
etary aid to foreign states.

Want to go boating or drink coffee ? 
If you're interested, talk to Merle 
Bahruth or Reece Bohannon. They art- 
students in the industrial arts depart 
ment this semester and their individ 
ual projects include a boat which 
Merle is building and a coffee table 
which Reece designed and is now con- 

Merle is building a twelve-foot row- 
boat of plywood. He is going to paint 
it red and white. 

The only problem Merle has now 
is to get the boat out of the basement 
of the junior high building. Several 
suggestions were made, which included 
cutting the boat in halves and carry- 
ing it out, or filling the basement 
with water and floating it out. Ob- 
jections have been made to both of 
these suggestions however, so the 
problem is still present. 

Merle who is a freshman in juco 
this year, graduated from high school 
in 1953 at Geuda Springs. He is plan- 
ning to use the boat on the Arkansas 
River near his home. 

Reece's coffee table, which is mod- 
ernistic in pattern, has a solid glass 
top. The glass was taken from the 
window of a B-29 and is about one 
and one-half inches thick, and weighs 
about 45 pounds. Reece says that 
there need never be any worry about 
breaking the glass, but that anything 
breakable which is dropped on it 
will be broken to pieces.

Bengals To Play 
Parsons Cards, 

The Parsons Cards and Coffeyville 
Ravens will be the next two games 
on the Tiger schedule as the Bengals 
swing into the young basketball sea- 

The Tigers started on the right foot 
with victories over the Alumni and 
St. John's of Winfield. 

Last year, the Tigers had difficulty 
with both teams. Parsons held one 
of the five Tiger defeats of the sea- 
son, having a 75-64 win over the 
Orange and Black at the Parsons gym. 
In a return game, Ark City ran wild 
against the Cardinals, winning 86-62. 

Although the Tigers defeated the 
Coffeyville Red Ravens in three games 
straight, they had to fight it down to 
the wire for their last two wins. In 
an early season game the Bengals 
easily beat the Ravens 73-51. Late 
in the season at Coffeyville, the Tigers 
won in the final 10 seconds, 63-61, 
when Ray Potter hit for two free 

The two teams met again in the 
Regionals at Dodge City. Ark City 
won again 72-67. 

In their first two games, the Tigers 
have displayed only flashes of last 
year's championship team. Coach Dan 
Kahler has indicated that a lot of 
work must be done to take the Tigers 
into another state championship. 

Tigers Crush Eagles 

Displaying red-hot accuracy in their 
second contest of the season, the Ti- 
mers ran wild against their arch rivals 
from Winfield, St. John's, and defeat- 
ed the Johnnies 91-52 before a large 
crowd at the gymnasium on Tuesday 

St. John's were never in the game, 
as the Bengals jumped off to a 13-1 
lead. Scores at the quarters were: 26- 
15, 50-30, 74-41. 

Eleven Tigers hit the scoring list. 
Jim Reed, sophomore from Winfield 
led the parade with 19 points. He was 
followed by Reece Bohannon, 15; Lin- 
wood Burns, 11; Lafayette Norwood, 
10; J. C. Louderback, 10; John Cheuv- 
ront, 7; Cy Seitchick, 6; Don Neal, 5; 
Skip Cleaver, 5; Dean Jackson, 2; and 
Frank Scarth, 1. 

In the B team game, the Bengals 
also came out on top with a 53-33 vic- 
tory, for their second straight success. 
Skip ( leaver and Ken Weber led in 
scoring' with 11 and 9 points. 

Ravens, Conquistadores 

Finish In Tie 

For State Grid Title 

Coffeyville and Dodge City ended 
the 1953 juco football season as co- 
champions of the state as a result of 
the Red Ravens 19-13 victory over the 
Conqs at Coffeyville on Friday, Nov- 
ember 20. 

Each team ended the season with 
a conference record of four wins and 
two losses. During the season the 
Tigers defeated Coffeyville 33-19. and 
lost to Dodge City 20-0.

A.C. Cheerleaders 
Begin Practicing 
For Cage Season 

Practice, practice, practice, is what 
the juco cheerleaders have been doing 
to get ready for the basketball sea- 

New yells, new motions and a new 
head cheerleader are in the making. 
At the beginning of the school year 
the cheerleaders decided to elect two 
head cheerleaders, one for football 
and one for the basketball season. 
Toby Wright was the football sea- 
son's head cheerleader. The basketball 
season's head cheerleader will prob- 
ably be chosen by the cheerleaders 
next week. 

At a meeting on November 24 in 
the club room they decided to have 
i no night practice a week with several 
day practices to acquire co-ordination 
among themselves, and to learn at 
least one new yell a week. 

Donna Waltrip Bride

Other iuco students took part in 
the m rriage ceremonies. Don Neal 
porved ns best man. Alan Austin, Cy

student, was the brides only attend- 

A reception followed the wedding. 

Alumni Edged 
55-54 In 
Tiger Opener 

The Bengals opened the 1953-54 
basketball season with a 55-54 victory 
over their Alumni, Saturday evening 
at the gymnasium. 

The Alumni led most of the way, 
until the final quarter, though the lead 
changed hands six times in the fourth 
period. The scores at the quarters 
were 13-11, 27-24, and 36-34. 

Considering that the Alumni team 
had not practiced together, they did 
a superior job and with a few breaks 
they could have easily won the game. 
The Alumni team were managed by 
Orlan Coffman. 

The scoring went as follows: Alum- 
ni, Potter— 11, David— 10, Parker— 3, 
Berry — 4, Clay — 8, Ogren — 9, Gilmore 
—2, Gaddis— 1, and Rutter— 6. Wilson 
failed to score. 

For the Tigers, Lafayette Norwood 
led the scoring parade with 15 points. 
He was followed by Don Neal, 8; Lin- 
wood Burns, 7; Jim Reed, 6; J. C. 
Lounderback, 4; and Dick Leu, 6. Skip 
Cleaver did not break into the scor- 
ing' column. 

In the preliminary contest between 
the Tiger B's and the Alumni B's, the 
Bengals easily whipped the old grads 
to the tune of 62-34. 

It was evident from the start, that 
the game was going to be one-sided. 

Skip Cleaver with 14 points was 
high scorer for the Bengals. Other 
players who played for Ark City were 
Howerton, D. Jackson, L. Scarth, J. 
Jackson, Dixon, Seal, Prochaska, Gray, 
Thompson, Elrod, Brazle, F. Scarth, 
and Donley.

As the joyous season of Christ- 
mas draws near, what do you think 
about? The gifts you'll give and re- 
ceive? The holiday, full of parties 
and fun? Of course, everyone does. 
But let's stop for a moment. 

Take a walk down Summit street 
and notice the beautifully decorated 
windows. How i s Christmas por- 
trayed? With Santa Claus, reindeer, 
bells, trees, fire-places with stock- 
ings hanging on them ? True, each 
of these represent a custom that has 
been handed down through the years, 
but where is Christ? There are very 
fo-y c-cenes of the Devinity, and after, aren't ws celebrating the birth of 

The stores have, commericialized 
Christmas to the extent that not only 
have they influenced others, but they 
themselves have forgotten the true 
meaning of Christmas. Yes, Christ- 
mas is the time to give and receive; 
where did this custom come from ? 

At the time Christ was born, three 
wise men came to Him, bringing Him 
gifts of gold, frankinsence, and myrrh. 
Was this the beginning of the giving 
custom, or was it before this? Could 
is have started when God gave us 
his son to live in our hearts, not only 
at Christmas time, but all the year 
around ? 

The next time you say "Merry 
Christmas" to someone, I hope that 
you'll really mean it. Let's let others 
know that we are putting Christ back 
into Christmas.

speaker at the annual Lions Club 
Arkansas City football banquet, as a 
large crowd gathered at the American 
Legion Hall to pay tribute to the grid-

While juco students are enjoying 
a long Christmas and New Year's 
holiday, the Tiger basketball team will 
be working hard almost every day 
preparing themselves for the long 
hard cage season. 

With the holiday comes the Christ- 
mas tournament, sponsored by Arkan- 
sas City, to be held at the gymnasium 
on December 28 and 29. Last year 
the tourney was played at El Dorado 
with the Bengals capturing first place

After the Christmas tournament, 
the Orange and Black will then pre- 
pare for their opening conference 
game with El Dorado on January 8, 
at the Grizzlies home floor. 

In tomorrow's game the Tigers will 
be putting their undefeated record 
on the line. Last year the Wichita 
Frosh team were the state A.A.U. 

In winning their first four games, 
the Bengals have shown lots of team- 
work, hustle and a strong defense. 

The offense must be worked on to 
straighten out a few rough spots. The 
shooting percentage has been good. 

Bunt Speer's "B" team has also 
showed up well with three victories 
in their only games played to date. 

Several of the "B" team players 
have improved rapidly and will prob- 
ably give some of the varsity mem-

At Gymnasium 

Keeping their undefeated record in- 
tact, the Tigers drove to their third 
straight victory, humbling Parsons 
71-48 at the gymnasium on December 

The Cardinals tried desperately to 
stop the Tiger fast break with a pres- 
sing zone defense, but once the Orange 
and Black got their eyes on the 
bucket, the game turned into a rout. 

Lafayette Norwood was high scorer 
with 17 points. Mike Lavan hit for 
17 for the visitors. 

Ark City led all the way. Scores 
at the quarters were 20-15, 35-24, 54-

Bunt Speer 
Resigns As 
Football Coach 

Bunt Speer, head football coach, 
resigned from his athletic duties, 
effective at the end of the present 
school year. 

Speer submitted his request to be 
relieved from his athletic duties to 
Dr. J. J. Vineyard, superintendent 
of. schools, over the weekend. Vine- 
yard stated that Speer will continue 
as an instructor in the Ark City 
school system. 

The Board of Education has not 
named a new coach, but there is a 
possibility that the new coach will 
be selected from men now in the 
school system, Dr. Vineyard said. 

Speer is a graduate of Kansas 
State College, where he was a stand- 
out member of the Wildcat football 
team. He came to Arkansas City in 
1939 and served as athletic director 
and coach of the junior high school. 
During World War II, Speer en- 
tered the Navy. He returned to Ark 
City in October of 1945. The following 
year he became head football and 
basketball coach at juco. 

This year, under Speer, the Tigers 
had one of their best football teams 
of recent years, winning seven out 
of ten games. Last year Speer also 
had a successful team, winning four 
and losing three. 

Mr. Speer will finish out the current 
basketball season as assistant coach 
of the Tiger cage squad. 

After twelve years of coaching, 
Speer stated: 

"I regret leaving the coaching 
fi"ld. but I feel I can be more use- 
ful in my capacity as a teacher. Work- 
ing with the boys has been a won- 
derful experience, and I'll always 
cherish the acquaintances and mem- 
ories of my coaching.

Have you ever wondered where the 
Student Council money goes or how 
it is earned ? Many of you have, no 

The Student Council spends this 
money in various ways and for var- 
ious items for the school. Last year 
the Council spent approximately $650 
for paint and tile for the clubroom, 
$40 for used furniture in the club- 
room, $30 for ping pong tables, $15 
for ping- pong balls, $150 for the 
bands for the Christmas dance and the 
Tigerama, $15 for special music for 
the St. Patrick dance, $20 for awards, 
$30 to send delegates to the Student 
Council conferences, and paid ex- 
penses on all activities of the Tiger 
Action Club. 

This money is raised by the conces- 
sion stand at the games and by var- 
ious other projects. The concession 
stand is run by the Student Council 
with help from the Tiger Action Club 
and other students. 

The money earned in the conces- 
sion stand and other projects this 
year so far have been spent for a 
new pool table, another ping pong 
table, and payments on the coke mach- 
ine. Many other things will be done 
next semester to help improve the 
school. Let's all help the Student 
Council with out- time and ideas. 
Every cent earned is for us.

Bengals Blast 
Way To Title 

In Own Tourney 

The Tigers blasted their way to 
the Arkansas City Christmas Invi- 
tational basketball tournament 
championship by trouncing an out- 
classed Coffeyville team 70-32 in the 
final game of the tourney on Dec- 
ember 29. On the previous night the 
Bengals had eliminated Independence 

The victory marked the fifth champ- 
ionship the Tigers have won under 
the short reign of Coach Dan Kahler, 
in little over a year. 

As last year's championship team, 
the Tigers showed terrific "bench 
strength." In both tournament games, 
Kahler's second and third five's 
poured it on, after the first five wore 
their opponents down. 

In opening round games on Dec- 
ember 28, Coffeyville advanced to the 
finals by downing a stubborn El Dor- 
ado team 62-52. The Red Ravens were 
in command all the way, but never 
had the game tucked away until the 
final minutes. Pruitt scored 23 noints 
for Coffeyville. Wichers, with 13 
counters, was high man for the 

In the night-cap of the double- 
h"-dpv program, Ark City had little 
difficulty with Independence and 
walked off with an eary 73-46 victory. 

Lafayette Norwood hit for 18 
mints. The Bengals utilized the fast 
break to perfection and controlled 
both backboards. 

The next evening saw Independence 
whip El Dorado 62-55 in the consol- 
ation game and Ark City humbling 
Coffeyville 70-32, to capture the 
championship trophy. 

With Blair and Storey doing most 
of the scoring, the Pirates of Indepen- 
dence came through with their first 
victory of the year over El Dorado. 
The Pirates held a 30-19 halftime 

In the title game, the Tigers roared 
to another victory with all 15 players 
hitting the scoring column. It was 
the best performance of the year for 
Ark City. 

Defense played the major role in 
the Bengal win, with Cofrey-il'e scor- 
ing only 12 points in thf>" last half. 
In the second half, Kahler played 
his first five for only 4 minutes. 

Ark City players seeing action in 
the tourney were Burns, Bohannon, 
D. Jackson, Howerton, Reed, Leu, 
Rendulich, Cleaver, Prochaska, Nor- 
wood, Scarth, Elrod, Louderbaek, Neal 
and Seitchick.

El Dorado Grizzlies 
First Victims as 
Bengals Open Season 

The Tigers opened their defense 
of the Western Division champion- 
ship with a rousing 65-44 victory 
over the El Dorado Grizzlies oh Jan- 
uary 8, at the loser's court. 

Opening up fast, the Bengals raced 
to an 11-1 lead in the opening minutes. 
The Grizzlies kept plugging away 
until midway in the third period they 
came within three points of tiein >■ 
the game on a field goal by Wickers. 

At this point the Tigers opened up, 
and with Jim Feed and Lafayette 
Norwood hitting from all angles, the 
Bengals led by 18 points as the fourth 
civ rter started. 

Cofch Dan Kahler played his re- 
serves throughout the final p?rio:'. 
Scores at th° auarters were 1 2-6, 
26-19, and 50-32, in favor of the Ben- 
g Is. 

In gaive ststistics, Ark City m de 
22 out of 59 field goal attempts f r 
a 7 net- cent average. El Dorado 
sank 15 shots in 52 attempts for a 
per 'enrage of 28.6. 

R?ed was high scorer with 17 points 
followed by Norwood With 15 ; and 
Linwood Burns 12. 

The victory was the seventh in 
eight starts for the Tigers this year. 

FWh^rs of Th-ee .Itico Men 
Die During Holidays 

The Christmas holiday's were sad- 
dened for three juco students when 
their fathers passed away during this 

Ralph Reed, father of Jim Reed; 
and Fred Arnett, Arkansas City, 
father of Duanne and Don Arnett, 
both died as a result of heart attacks. 



Iola Junior College has forfeited 
two basketball games for using an 
ineligible player, it was learned from 
school authorities from Iola. The two 
grmes were against El Dorado and 
Chanute, both of which resulted in 
Iola victories. 

As a result of the forfeit, Iola drop- 
ped out of the league lead, as the 
g me with Chanute ws an Eastern 
Division conference tilt. 


Take to Road 

The Tigers are faced with a cru- 
cial conference game tonight at 
Dodge City, tip-off at 8:30. After a 
day's rest, the Bengals will travel to 
Garden City for another tough league 
encounter. The annual western trip 
is the most trying experience of the 
season for the team. 

Three other games are on the Tiger 
schedule in the next two weeks. In 
all home games, Ark City will meet 
Hutchinson, Jan. 19; Sayre, Jan. 22; 
and Independence, on Jan. 26. 

In tonight's game with Dodge City, 
the Bengals have an excellent oppor- 
tunity to take over first place in the 
Western Divistion standings. Both 
teams are deadlocked along with 
Garden City with 1-0 league records. 
Dodge City remains the only unde- 
feated team in the state and Coach 
Kehler and his boys would like 
nothing better than to knock the 
Conqs off. 

I ast year the Orange and B'ack 
defeated the Ccnqs in a special play- 
off game at Independence to win the 
division championship. 

The Timers returned home on 
January 19 t" meet a stiff test against 
Futchinson. The Dragons are rate 1 a=; 
the most improved team ov^r last 
year and are a contender for title 

The 'n-Ts have v- •.-„--„--, ft „' --? 
their eight games this year losing 
only to the Wichita University Frosh 
by 3 points. 

Wichita U Frosh 
Dump Tigers, 63-60 

After leading for three quarters, 
the Tigers lost steam in the final 
10 minutes of play and dropped their 
first game of the season to the Wich- 
ita University Freshmen, f>3-69, at 
the Forum on December 18. 

Despite the loss, Coach Dan Kahler 
was pleased with the team's perfor- 
mance. After falling behind midw;. y 
through the final stanza, the Ben- 
gals came back in the last two min- 
utes to almost win the game. 

Coin of Wichita was the game's 
high scorer, with 24 points. Lafayette 
Norwood led the Tigers with 16.

When this paper is distributed the 
second semester's work should be well 
under way. Probably some students 
made New Years Resolutions to study 
harder the next semester. The major- 
ity of the college students probably 
didn't think about this situation. 

Starting a new semester should 
really mean something. To the sopho- 
more, this is the final work and every- 
one should want to leave a good im- 
pression. The freshman should look 
to the future and make plans. Good 
grades are not ends in themselves, 
but the effort involved can contribute 
to a more satisfactory life. 

In most cases one must to put forth 
only a little extra effort to achieve 
the proper grades. Good grades cer- 
tainly are an asset and one who re- 
ceives above average marks should be 
very proud. 

Studying takes time and concentrat- 
ed effort, but it pays off in the long 
Here are a few studying hints: 
Have a special time to study. 
Following a routine is a go^d 

Don't put studying off until the 
last minute or until it's time to 
go to bed. 

Be accurate and very neat. 
Don't just skim over your stud- 
ies because it's not worth it. If 
you're going to do something, 
do it right. 

Study where it's quiet and there 
is good lighting. 
Have the proper equipment at 
your finger tips. 
Try tb establish an interest in 
your subjects. 

Don't try to study too long at 
one time. 

Sometimes it's fun and some- 
limes convenient to study with 
your friends.

have not set down any specific plat- 
form as I do not feet that the presi-

Juco Quintets 
in Action 

Leading juco teams in the state will 
invade the gymnasium within the next 
two weeks as the Tigers are faced 
with a heavy schedule of five games 
which include four vital conference 

A capacity crowd is expected to be 
on hand for tomorrow's game with 
Dodge City. The Conqs come into town 
with an undefeated record of 10 wins, 
and are currently leading the Western 

If Ark City has hopes to re-capture 
the Division crown, this is a "must" 
game. The Bengals go into the fray 
with a record of 11 wins and 2 losses. 
Two weeks ago at Dodge City the 
Conqs bested the Tigers 86-64. 

On Saturday evening Ark City is 
faced with another cruical league en- 
counter, playing host to Garden City. 

The Bronc Busters are tied with 
the Bengals for second place, and 
have ideas of their own about winning 
the Division championship. 

On February 1, the Tigers travel 
to Parsons for a nonconference game, 
and the return home to meet Pratt 
Beavers, February 5. 

A trip to Hutchinson is on tap for 
February 9, with an engagement at 
their new million dollar arena. 

Pratt has not yet played the Tigers 
this season, while Garden City, Hutch- 
inson, and Parsons were defeated by 
the Tigers. 

Ark City defeated Garden 81-66 
there, and Hutchinson 68-56 at home. 
Parsons was also drubbed 71 to 48 on 
the local boards. 

Dodge CUy Minister 
Praises Sportsmanship 
Of Tiger Basketeers 

Coach Dan Kahler and the Tiger 
basketball team received a tribute 
last week when Rev. Gerald I. Gerig, 
a Dodge City Pastor, wrote them a 

The Rev. Gerig congratulated the 
team for its wonderful sportsmanship 
shown throughout the entire game. 
He stated: 

"You may have lost the game ac- 
cording to the scoreboard, but I'm 
convinced you won the admiration of 
many fans who were at the game." 

Hutchinson Dragons Are 
Victims, As Tigers 
Move Back up Ladder 

The Tigers took over second place 
in the Western division standing by 
easily walloping the Dragons of 
Hutchinson J. C. 68-56 at the gym- 
nasium on January 19. 

The important conference victory 
put the Bengals only one game be- 
hind Dodge City and gave them a 9-2 
record for the season. 

Early in the second quarter Hutch- 
inson surged ahead 24-23 on a field 
goal bu Schippers. 

Immediately afer that goal, the 
Bengals found the range and pulled 
away to a 40-31 lead at halftime. 

Late in the third period and early 
in the fourth the Orange and Black 
with Lafayette Norwood and Jim 
Reed leading the attack pulled into a 
20 point lead. 

Coach Dan Kahler used 15 players 
in the team's victory. 

Arks Smother 
Sayre, Okla., Team 
After Slow Start 

After a poor first half the Bengals 
roared back in the final 20 minutes of 
play to smother a tall Sayre, Okla- 
homa, Junior College team, 77-43, at 
the gymnasium on January 19. 

The victory was the tenth of the 
year and the fortieth in 47 starts 
since Dan Kahler became head coach 
last year. 

The Tigers led 29-23 at half-time, 
after playing some of the worst ball 
this year. 

At the start of the second half, 
the Tigers were a different ball club. 
Passing, shooting, and defense became 

All 15 players on the squad saw 
action and entered the scoring column. 
Jim Reed and Tony Rendulich tied 
for scoring honors with 12 points 

Ark City hit 23 field goals in 76 
attempts and Sayre made good for 
15 out of 50 tries. 

In the preliminary game, the Tiger 
B's were nosed out by the Atlanta 
town team, 39-38.

Bengals Split 
On Annual 
Hoodoo Journey 

An 81-66 victory over Garden City 
gave the Tigers an even split for 
their Western division trip to Dodge 
City and Garden on January 14 and 
16. The trip is an annual hoodoo for 
the travelers, whether bound east or 

At Dodge City the Bengals suffered 
their first conference loss of the year, 
and their second defeat of the sea- 
son, bowing 86 to 64. 

The game was actually close, with 
the Conqs holding a 66-61 lead with 
only five minutes remaining. 

It was easily the best performance 
of the season for Dodge City. In 
racking up their ninth straight victory 
without a loss, the Conqs hit 50 per 
cent of their shots. 

Rex Peterson, who went scoreless 
against Hutchinson a few days prior 
to the Ark City game, tallied 19 
points to lead the Conqs. 

Lafayette Norwood and Tony Ren- 
dulich, with 17 points each, led the 
Tiger scoring. 

The Garden City game was a dif- 
ferent story. The Bengals took an 
early lead and were never headed. 

A big third quarter proved to be 
the major factor in their eighth win 
of the year. Ark City scored 34 points 
while holding the Busters to 7, and 
led 66-44 as the fourth period opened. 

Garden City came back strong in 
the final quarter but couldn't over- 
come the large Tiger lead. 

Coach Dan Kahler used all 13 of his 
touring players in both games. See- 
ing action for the Tigers were La- 
fayette Norwood, J. C. Louderback, 
Linwood Burns, Tony Rendulich, Jim 
Reed, Don Neal, Reece Bohannon, Cy 
Seitchick, Dick Leu, Dean and Jack 
Jackson, "Skip" Cleaver, and Frank 

Tiger B's Suffer 

First Defeat of Season 

The Tiger B team suffered their 
first defeat of the year on January 
12 when they were defeated by South- 
western College B team 43-42 at the 
winners court in Winfield. 

A frantic half-court shot with only 
one second remaining in the game by 
Faust gave the Buildeis their win. 

Jack Jackson, freshman from Chi- 
locco led the Bengal scoring with a 
total of 14 points.

Joe Herr Named 
Student Council 


Joe Herr was named president of 
of the Student Council over Joe Pro- 
chaska and Harold Spahr in the spirit- 
edly fought election held February 9. 
Herr received over fifty per cent of 
the vote cast as required in the con- 
stitution, and no run-off election is 

The first vote was cast by Wilma

Competition in size, position, and 
originality of posters existed to a 
degree never before displayed, veteran 
faculty members said. 

Each candidate adopted a set of 
colors and early in the campaign the 
two-foot banner in red and blue urg- 
ing that you "Vote for Joe Herr" 
appeared above the entrance, only to 
be topped by "Prosper with Prochas- 
ka" in orange and black. These two 
were soon joined by a blue and yellow 
sign — "Above Par Harold Spahr." 
Soon students saw "Stay on top with 
Prochaska," which was topped with 
"The higher they go the harder they 
fall — Vote for Joe Herr and be on 
the ball." It appeared that the sky was 
the limit, as the Prochaska leaflets 
dropped by plane testified, as well as 
the Herr sign on top of the auditor-

clerks and judges included Catherine

Joe Chyung, 
Bob Kim Here 



The Junior College welcomed its 
first students from the Far East last 
week when two ROK men arrived un- 
expectedly after traveling thousands 
of miles to Arkansas City from Korea. 

Another Korean, Alice Lee, was ex- 
pected to enroll at juco this week and 
a third man, Ham U Jin is expected 
about April 1. 

Both men, Myung-Cho (Joe) 
Chyung, and Yung- Won (Bob) Kim, 
are 19 years old, and are from Seoul. 

Actually both had been in contact 
with Dean K. R. Galle for nearly a 
year, and had announced their desire 
to matriculate here. They had sent 
Dean Galle a letter before Christmas, 
informing him of their trip to the 
States. Apparenly the letter wa3 
lost in the mails. 

Bob and Joe first heard of Arkansas 
City through an unidentified G. I., but 
were not interested at the time, and 
therefore never got his name. 

They have both enrolled in an 
engineering course. Their plans are 
too finish juco and graduate in 
architecture from a four-year institu- 
tion; then return to Korea to help 
build up their war-torn country. 

The new students were graduated 
Seoul High School last spring. Prior 
to thefr departure from Korea, both 
boys had to pass examinations by the 
Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry 
of Education, and the American Con- 

Asked what they thought of Ark 
City and juco thus far, Joe replied: 

"I like Ark City very fine. My 
country is almost all destroyed, and 
is all so different. I like this school, 
but I wish we had a campus and a 

"I feel the same as Joe", Bob said, 
"I like Ark City. It's nice and quiet. 
In Korea, their was never an end to

This is an editoral about us — stu- 
dents, faculty, interested participants 
and unaware passers-by — typical 
American men and women. We know 
:md appreciate our liberties— and our 
confinements. We eagerly take advan- 
tage of every opportunity to grasp 
the knowledge and entertainment ex- 
tended us. One needs only to glance 
through the auditorium doors at as- 
sembly time and note the large at- 
tendance; to attend a basketball game, 
and listen to the roar of the Juco 
pep section, bursting from the gallery; 
to participate in one of the social 
activities and see not as would be 
expected, boys huddled in one group, 
waiting for a girl's blunt invitation 
to dance, and the girls, eagerly 
grouped around the record machine, 
desperately trying to appear active 
so as not to be classed "wall-flower." 
No, at our socials the boys enjoy the 
companionship of their classmates by 
extending their own invitations, 
which, in turn, the girls graciously ac- 
cept. And if one will but witness the 
campaign of the coming election, one 
you cannot help but feel the enthusi- 
asm of competition, the urgency of 
victory, the hushed expectancy of a 
final ballot, not by just a handful of 
students but of every man and woman 
in the Junior College. What a wonder- 
ful example! 

This is an editorial about us.... 
you and me. But are we good ex- 
amples? Are we so busy, our shoulders 
so bowed with study, our minds so 
in-active, that we fail to see what 
could happen to our school if we fail 
to do our part and lose interest in 
the activities around us ? The answer 
is somewhere .... is it in you ?

Class Shows 
Building Progress 

The carpentry class under the di- 
rection of L. A. Chaplin is well on it's 
way to completion of a house which 
is being built on the lot north of the 
juco. Construction is about one-fourth 
done, Mr. Chaplin said last week. 

The house is being built so that 
an addition may be made if desired. 
The house will have four rooms and a 
bath, the living room 11x19, dinette 
8x11, kitchen 12x12, bathroom 6x6, 
and the bedroom 11x19. It will have 
one triple picture window in front

Five Scheduled 
Tilts Left for 
Tiger Cagers 

Only five more games remain on 
the Tiger schedule before the regional 
tournament begins at the gymnasium 
on March 3. 

Four of these games will be played 
in the next two weeks. Tomorrow 
night in Winfield, the Bengals meet 
the Johnnies of St. John's College. 
The game will be played at the South- 
western College field house. 

Earlier in the season, Ark City 
rocked St. John's to the tune of 91-52 
at the gymnasium. 

On February 16, Dan Kahler takes 
his boys to Independence, where the 
Tigers will try to make it three in a 
row over the Pirates. 

The Bengals will then return to 
their home premises to battle the El 
Dorado Grizzlies on February 19, in 
an important conference tilt. Local 
fans will get a chance to see the 
Coffeyville Red Ravens in a non-con- 
ference game on February 23. 

The Orange and Black go into to- 
morrow's game with St. John's with 
a nine-game winning streak and a 
season's record of 16 wins and 2 los- 
ses. The team is still tied with Dodge 
City for the leadership of the Western 
Division, with a league record of 7-1. 

Lettermen playing their final home 
scheduled game for Ark City on Feb- 
ruary 23 include Lafayette Norwood, 
J.C. Louderback, Linwood Bnrns, Jim 
Reed, Reece Bohannon, Frank Scarth, 
Wayne Thompson, and Cy Seitchick. 

Arks Stop Beaver 
Attack, Win 79-49 

The Bengals surged to their eighth 
consecutive victory and their 15th of 
the season by humbling Pratt, 79 to 
49, in a conference game at the gym- 
nasium on February 5. 

The high-scoring Beaver five had a 
75-point average going into the game, 
but a tight man-to-man defense by the 
Tigers forced Pratt to shoot a major- 
ity of their shots from outside. 

Scores at the quarters were 21-11, 
43-31, and 65-36. 

Ark City made 31 out of 79 shots 
while Pratt hit 18 for 62. 

This game also established a record 
of 20 successive wins for Ark City on 
the local boards. The last home defeat 
was on Jan. 10, 1953 at the hands of 
El Dorado. 

Bengals Slaughter 
Blue Dragous, 78-44 

Returning to the scene of the na- 
tional playoffs, the Tigers blasted 
the Hutchinson Blue Dragons 79-44 
in a Western Division conference 
game on February 9. 

The Bengals ran their victory string 
to 9 in a row in winning their 16th 
game in 18 outings. 

Wasting no time, the Tigers star- 
ted their barrage early, and continued 
the pace throughout the game. They 
led 22-8 at the quarter. 

Coach Dan Kahler played all 14 
squad members who made the trip. 
Lafayette Noi'wood was the game's 
high scorer, dumping in 14 points. 

The Bengals were without the ser- 
vices of Reece Bohannon, who injured 
his knee during the Pratt game. 

Tigers Rack Up 
Parsons for 14th 
Victory of Season 

The Tigers chalked up victory 
number 14 with a 76-60 decision over 
Parsons in a non-conference game on 
the loser's court on February 1. 

Once again it was a third quarter 
rally that sparked the Bengals to 
their win. Parsons led 20-16 at the 
end of the first quarter and 35-34 
early in the third. 

Scoring for Ark City was evenly 
divided among eight players. Linwood

Arks Revenge 
Loss To Dodge, 
Bust Busters 

Playing before capacity crowds at 
the gymnasium, the Tigers stretched 
their home victory streak to 19, with 
triumphs over Dodge City and Gar- 
den City on January 29 and 30. 

By whipping Dodge, the Bengals 
threw the Western Division into a 
two-way tie for the conference leader- 
ship. For the Conqs, it was their first 
defeat of the season after ten straight 

The next evening saw the Tigers 
romp to an 80-52 win over the Bronc 
Busters of Garden City. 

The Tigers had to come from be- 
hind with a third quarter rally to 
defeat Dodge City, 77-61, in a roar- 
ing battle. The Conqs held a 34 to 33 
lead at half-time, and led 39-35 early 
in the third stanza. 

The Bengals scored 27 points in 
the third period and hit a phenomenal 
75 per cent of their shots. 

Linwood Burns, with 22 points and 
Jim Reed, with 21, led the scoring 
for Ark City. Faurot and Fitzgerald, 
with 17 and 16, were high for Dodge 

In the Garden City contest, the 
Orange and Black raced to a 6-0 lead 
in the opening seconds and were never 

Scores at the quarters were 20-12, 
36-23, 62-33, and 80-52. 

In an effort to slow the Tigers 
down, the Busters used a pressing 
zone defense, but it didn't help, as 
the Bengals scored almost at will. 

Burns, with 14 points, followed by 
Rendulich and Seitchick, with 13 each, 
were high for Ark City. Dater tallied 
12 for Garden. 

The Tiger "B" team scored two 
more wins in preliminary games dur- 
ing the two nights. 

The first night, Bunt Speer's B team 
gained revenge on the Southwestern

Junior College 



New SC Prexie Welcomes Korean Trio 

Joe Herr, right, newly elected Student Council president, extends the 
offical student welcome to three new ACJC students, Joe Chyung, Alice 
Lee, and Bob Kim, who have recently arrived from Korea. 

After 17 days of riding on a ship 
whose motion disturbed her internally, 
ACJC's third Korean student, Miss 
Alice Lee, arrived in Arkansas City 
February 10. Miss Edna Wheatley, 
representing- her AAUW sponsors, 
met Alice at the Wichita Airport on 
the last leg of her long journey to 

It had been pre-arranged for Alice 
to stay with the H. J. Clark family. 
Alice likes Ark City fine because it 
is so "quiet and clean." "Seoul was 
never this quiet," Alice told a Tiger 
Tales reporter. 

When Alice graduated from Seoul 
Hiijh School she was the second high- 
est student in her class, but ACJC is 
very different from school in Korea, 
and Alice thinks it is very hard to ad- 
just to life here at juco. 

One of the biggest problems for a 

foreign student to overcome is the 
teachers' rapid speaking, she says. 
Reading is very difficult, because when 
she runs into a word that has not been 
a part of her vocabulary she often 
has to look up the word in the dic- 
tionary, and then look up the defini- 
tion of other unknown words to find 
out what the explanation means. 

Though people of Far Eastern na- 
tions eat much rice, it is not the sole 
diet item for Miss Lee. She likes it, 
but like the good sport she is, she 
samples everything set in front of her. 

Now that there are three Korean 
students enrolled in Arkansas City 
Junior College, the two boys, Joe Ch- 
yung and Bob Kim, are trying to talk 
Alice into preparing a Korean meal 
foi - them. She is not sure she can, be- 
cause at home her mother did all the 

College Is Host 
To Regional 

All the chips will be at stake when 
the top eight juco cage teams in the 
state invade the auditorium on March 
3-4-5- and 6 to battle for the State 
and regional championships, and the 
right to represent Kansas in the Na- 
tional tournament at Hutchinson later 
in the month. 

This is the first time Arkansas 
City has hosted the regional tourney, 
and capacity crowds are expected to 
jam the gymnasium every night. 

At the time of this writing, four 
teams have already qualified for tour- 
ney berths. They are Arkansas City, 
Dodge City, Coffeyville, and Parsons. 

Other teams that may win spots are 
Hutchinson, Garden City, Indepen- 
dence, Iola, Fort Scott, Chanute, and 
St. John's. 

Programs for the regional tourna- 
ment this year are being sponsored by 
the college D-E club. The programs 
this year will have the team pictures 
as well as names and numbers. Adver- 
tising space in the programs was sold 
to Ark City merchants to help pay 
for the programs. 

Price for the programs will be 10 or 
15 cents, members said last week. 

The squad for Arkansas City will 
include Lafayette Norwood, Linwood 
Burns, Jim Reed, Tony Rendulich, Cy 
Seitchick, J. C. Louderback, Reece 
Bohannon, Skip Cleaver, Frank Scarth 
and Dick Leu. 

Each night two games will be 
played. The game will get underway 
at 7:30 and the night-cap at 9:00. 

The championship finals will b< 
played on Saturday evening, March 
0, at 9:00 p.m. 

Special prices have been set for 
students for the regional games. Stu 
dents can see all eight games on foil 
nights for $2, as a result of an appea 
made by Joe Herr, Student Council 

Juco students desiring to see only 
one game or buy individual tickets 
must pay 75 cents each night. 

Student tickets are now on sale 
at the Junior College.

A more crucial parking problem 
for students will arise when Third 
Street becomes a one-way street, un- 
der present plans of the City Com- 

Due to the congested traffic around 
the three schools, there will be only 
north-bound traffic on Third Street. 
Having only south-bound traffic on 
Second Street will provide one-way 
travel completely around the schools. 

One-way streets are excellent safety 
precautions, but what are the stu- 
dents going to do who drive cars 
to college classes, along with the stu- 
dents who drive to senior high and 
junior high school. 

College teachers are in the process 
of achieving a private parking lot for 
themselves. The space between the 
college and the shops is being leveled 
to accomodate the faculty cars. This 
will release approximately seventeen 
parking spaces, but this is only a drop 
in the bucket compared to what is 
really needed! With Third Street one- 
way there will be parking on one side 
of 'the street only. This takes away 
about 15 spaces. 

On Washington Avenue there will 
be parallel parking on the south side 
only. This may be a very wise move 
because the street is very, very nar- 
row, and it looks like parallel parking 
would provide better safety conditions. 
There is barely enough room for two 
cars to pass each other. But still, 
parking spaces will be lost. 

When parking conditions get to the 
point that student drivers have to 
park in yards of people who "neigh- 
bor" the school, in alleys, and on the 
sidewalk spaces, there must be some- 
thing done. Many students and some 
faculty members have received traffic 
tickets for blocking sidewalks and 
the allev behind the auditorum. With

Second and Third Streets being one 
way, why can't there be parking on 
both sides of these streets ? 

This would improve the conditions 
greatly. After all, we are sharing 
these two streets with two other 
schools, and there just is not enough 
room. Will the problem become better 
or worse with the new change ?

Blotter Contest Prizes 

Warren Palmer, high school senior, 
and Barbara Head, juco freshman, 
were notifed February 18, that they 
had placed first and second in the fifth 
annual Printers Guild Blotter Contest. 
Palmer also placed third. 

This is the first time in the history

two places, A. F. Buffo, printing 
instructor, said Thursday. There were 
nine honorable mentions, one of which 
went to a college sophomore, Bob 

The blotters this year were more 
colorful than ever before, Buffo said. 
All of the students struck out on their 
own and used their ideas without any 
help from the instructor. The winning 
blotter was judged as almost perfect. 

The first place winner received five 
dollars, second three dollars and third 
place two dollars along with gold 
certificates. The honorable mention 
entries received certificates also. 

Charles Coffelt of the Traveler, 
Virgil England of Chilocco Printing 
Department, and Kenneth Rhodes of

Pratt Beavers 
Could Smash 
Bengal Hopes 

The Western Division championship 
may hang in the balance when the 
Ark City Tigers travel to Pratt to- 
morrow evening to play the Beavers 
in a vital conference tilt. 

Going into the game, the Bengals 
are tied with Dodge City for first 
place with a league mark of 8-1, The 
Conqs have one remaining league 
game with Garden City, at Garden. 

The Tiger-Pratt game will mark 
the end of the regular schedule of the 
1953-54 basketball season and a Ben- 
gal win will give "Kahler's Boys" a 
■> record of 20 wins and 3 losses. 

Pratt, always a tough opponent on 
the home floor, will be gunning for 
the Tigers, especially since Ark City 
trounced them earlier in the season. 

With Reece Bohannon back in shape 
after a serious knee injury the Ben-

Too Much Team 

In the final home conference game 
of the season, the Tigers whipped the 
El Dorado Grizzlies 65-53, to remain 
in a tie for first place in the Western 
division standings with Dodge City. 

With Jim Frary hitting at a 25- 
point clip on hook shots, the Grizzlies 
led in the early moments of the game 
and at one time held a six-point ad- 
vantage in the opening period, but 
a Bengal rally put the Tigers five 
points in front as the quarter ended. 

Ark City led at the quarters by 
scores of 20-15, 33-27, and 50-38, and 
midway in the third quarter pulled 
into a 17-point lead. 

Jim Reed was high scorer with

each. Arkansas City recieved $500 to 
pay expenses of the team to the na- 
tional tourney, and $505.16 to the 
local school to cover tourney expense. 
Officials, trophies, and region official's 
expense totaled $523.20. The Chamber 
of Commerce, as sponsoring agency, 
received no share of the proceeds. 

Carsons Enter Tourney 
At St. John's College 

John and Sam Carson will enter 
the 22nd annual forensic tourney at 
St. John's College, March 12 and 13. 
They will debate three rounds Fri- 
day, and if two are won, two in the 
finals Saturday. This is the first time 
in many years that debate is the only 
field entered. 

Coming forensic events include the 
6th Annual Spring Speech Festival 
for Kansas public junior colleges at 
El Dorado, March 26 and 27. 

Bengals 'Eat 
Peaches' at 

Peach fuzz and stones fairly flew 
as a hustling Tiger team blasted 
Brewton-Parker's Barons of Mt.Ver- 
non, Ga., from the championship 
bracket in the national junior college 
tourney at Hutchinson, Tuesday night, 
70 to 54. 

After bang-up first quarter which 
saw the Baron's early lead erased by 
three quick baskets by Tony Rendu- 
lich, and then the score knotted six 
times, the Bengals gradually pulled 
away, and shot to a 10-point ad- 
vantage at the half, 37 to 27. 

Burns led the Tiger scorers with 20 
points, but every Bengal saw action. 

The win sent the Arks into second- 
round play against the Hannibal-La- 
Grange Trojans, of Hannibal, Mo., 
perennial national tournament qual- 
ifiers, who sported a 23-1 record 
coming into the tourney.

A.C.J.C. is proud of her teams, the 
Regional Champs, and a sideline team 
that has been supporting the Tigers 
all this season, the Tiger Action Club, 
official arm of the student body for 
promotional activities. 

The TAC, 45 members strong, has 
made a good showing on the court, 
peddling pop, ushering, as well as in 
other activities. Good sportsmanship 
and cooperation have been shown as 
the TAC cheered at the games, worked 
in the concession stand under the di- 
rection of Terry Hodkin, and as they 
helped Marjory Ramsey in planning 
the pep assemblies. 

The TAC has taken some progres- 
sive steps this year to encourage 
"team spirit" in the student body. 
Sections were roped off for the stu- 
dents to unite the oneness of our 
winning will. During the regionals 
two sections were reserved and oc- 
cupied by our all-student team. 

Sixteen members of the TAC helped 
in the px*esentation of tournament 
trophies, and when the cheerleaders 
and student team joined voices and 
victoriously yelled, "We've got a 
coach, team, pep, steam! Fifteen rahs 
for the basketball team!" How about 
fifteen rahs for our student team ? 
Congratulations are in order for 
BOTH teams.

Engineers Go 
To Salt Mines 
At Hutchinson 

Members of the college engineering 
drawing class took a field trip Feb. 23 
to Hutchinson to go through the salt 
mines. The trip was planned originally 
as a first semester project, but due to 
the weather and other unavoidable 
circumstances it was postponed until 
second semester. 

The class finished the tour in time 
to eat dinner at the Continental Grill 
in Wichita. 

Butt of the jokes of the trippers was 
Jerry Kitchens, who being mis- 
informed, missed a turn and took the 
long way, but by some strange reason 
got there at the same time as every 
one else, and thus had the last laugh. 

Those making the trip were Jerry 
Barker, Bruce Bittle, Max Brown, 
Jean Blakey, Ronald Christenson, 
Jerry Fife, Barbara Head, Joe Herr, 
Morris Jarvis, Jerry Kitchens, Charles 
Nichols, Don White, Ira White, Sam 
Carson, Bob Kim, Joe Chyung, Jim 
Sphar, Lela Mclrvin, John Carson, and 
Mr. and Mrs. Carl Holman.

Juke Box 

Students have been gathering for 
the past two weeks around the new 
juke box in the clubroom, to dance 
or listen to popular recording's. The 
music box was purchased by the Stu- 
dent Council from the Cal Amuse- 
ment Co., of Ark City, for the sum 
of $80, and will be used for future 
college socials as well as in the rec- 
reation room. 

The juke box is about three years 
old and then it would have sold for 
approximately $400. No money is 
ridded to play the music box, as the 
coin mechanism is disconnected. 

Joe Herr, Student Council presi- 
dent, has asked that when the juke 
box is not working that students noti- 
fy him or Don Payne, clubroom chair- 
man, and not to attempt repairs them- 

The portable record player will be 
available in the office for small groups 
or classroom use, Herr stated. 

"Poems" Honor Players 

In Pre-Tourney Pep Meeting 

A "poetic" description of the tourn- 
ament squad and Coach Dan Kahler 
featured the pretourney pep assembly 
held March 3, as the Tigers prepared 
to meet Fort Scott in their first game. 

The coach and entire squad gathered 
behind the curtain and stepped out to 
occupy prepared seats as Jack Hale, 
student chairmen for the day, read 
the doggerel prepared by a group of 
college girls. Band members furnished 
pep music and Miss Phyllis Boyle 
played the accompaniment for the 
Alma Mater. 

Tigers Romp 
In 91-58 Win 
Over Ravens 

The Juco Tigers won their 22nd 
home game in a row Feb. 23 by hang- 
ing one on the Coffeyville Red Ravens, 
Eastern Division Champs, 91-58, in a 
game highlighted by some of the fan- 
ciest ball handling and passing seen on 
the local floor in many a moon. This 
was also the Bengals 19th win in 22 
starts for the year and completed the 
1953-54 regular season at home. 

Coach Dan Kahler again swept the 
bench clean, using 15 men in the rout. 

Five players scored in the double 
figures, with Lin Burns hitting his 
peak with 24. Four others were close 
behind Burns, with Jim Reed getting 
17, Bohannon 14, Norwood 13, and 
Skip Cleaver 11. 

The Tigers again took command of 
the rebounding department, wiping 
clean the boards 45 times to 25 for 
the Ravens. 

The Felines hit 43 percent of their 
shots with 34 of 79 shots popping the 
cords. Other payers seeing action were 
Rendulich, Seitchick, Louderback, Leu, 
Elrod, Scarth, Thompson, Prochaska, 
and Dean and Jack Jackson. 

This was the Tigers' third triumph 
in three meetings with Coffeyville this 

In the preliminary game the "B" 
te?m outran the Apco Oilers 55-50, 
with Shakey Elrod and Jo-Jo Prochas- 
ka leading the way with 16 and 10 
points respecively. 

The Arkansas City P.T.A. Council 
were hosts at an informal coffee for 
the college faculty members March 3, 
in the juco kitchen. Two tables, attrac- 
tively set, were presided over by Mrs. 
Henry Yates and Mrs. C. S. Johnson. 
During the mixer coffee and crumpets 
were served. 

Bengals Bop 
Pratt for 
Win No. 20 

The Arkansas City Juco Tigers 
closed out their 1953-54 regular season 
play Feb. 26, with a 80-72 victory 
over the Pratt Beavers in the Beavers' 
home pond. The Tigers were trailing 
the Beavers at the end of the third 
quarter, but closed with a rush and 
scored 26 points in the fourth quarter 
to take the win, their 20th in 23 games 
of the season. This left the Bengals 
tied With Dodge City for first place in 
the final Western Division standings. 
Both teams compiled a 9-1 conference 

Linwood Burns, jumping jack Tiger 
forward, captured scoring honors of 
the game by rifling through 25 points, 
his season's high. Scoring other than 
Burns' was pretty well divided, with 
Reed getting 16, Norwood 15 and 
Rendulich 14. Jenkins led the Pratt 
five with 19. 

Coach Dan Kahler used only eight 
players in the hard-fought game, and 
they hit 29 of 68 field goals attempts 
for a 43 percentage. 

Score by quarters: 

Tigers 15 




Beavers 15 





Now Is The Time 

For All Good Students 

To Come to Own Aid 

Juco teachers have been dropping 
hints lately, which are being inter- 
preted by knowing students to mean 
that they are now in their seventh 
week of the second semester, and are 
nearing that time when all good stu- 
dents are home studying. Mid-term 
exams are to be expected any day 
from now on out, though grade cards 
will not be out until somewhere near 
March 31. So now is the time for all 
good students to come to aid of them- 

On the humor side, Kelsey Day was 
involved in a little incident on the 
coldest day of the month. As he was 
leaving through the back-stage door 
of the juco auditorium, his coat tail 
stuck in the crack of the door as it 
was closing. Unable to open the door, 
and having no key, Mr. Day was 
forced to maneuver out of the coat, 
while the coat-tail was still in the 
door-way, and walk around the build- 
ing back into the auditorium to un- 
lock the door and get his coat.

Tigers to zrs 

STATE, REGION VI CHAMPS — Arkansas City's Tigers Saturday night won their second straight Kansas 
and NJCAA Regional championships. First row: Skip Cleaver, Dick Leu, Reece Bohannon, Linwood Burns, 
J. C. Louderback, Lafayette Norwood, Seymour Seitchick, Frank Scarth, Tony Rendulich and Jim Reed. Second 
row: Calvin Brazle, Wayne Thompson, Jack Jackson, Dean Jackson, Joe Prochaska, Larry Scarth, Merlin 
Burnett, Howard Gray, Leslie Dixon, Bill Elrod. 

With three surprisingly easy vic- 
tories, the Ark City Tigers emerged 
as State and regional champions for 
the second consecutive year in the 
NJCAA Tournament at the gymnas- 
ium, March 3-4-5-6. 

As a result of the tourney champ- 
ionship the Bengals are now in Hutch- 
inson representing Kansas in the Nat- 
ional Tournament which began on 
Tuesday and ends Saturday evening. 

The tournament was marked by a 
wave of upsets. Perhaps the biggest 
upset of the entire Kansas basketball 
season occurred in the opening round 
when the Independence Pirates de- 
feated top-seated Dodge City, 56-52. 

The same evening saw another up- 
set when St. John's overcame a 13- 
point deficit to defeat Parsons. 

In other opening round games, once 
again the favorite team fell to defeat 
when the Coffeyville Red Ravens, 
champions of the Eastern division, 
lost to Hutchinson, 71-52. 

Only the Tigers ran true to form in 
the first round. Kahler's team ran 
wild against Ft. Scott, winning 100-68 
to set a new scoring record at the 

In the semi-finals on Friday evening 
the Tigers continued their onslaught 
against a game Hutchinson team, win- 
ning 77-58. 

Also on Friday evening another up- 
set was staged when the giant-killers. 
Independence, lost to St. John's Eag- 

In the finals on Saturday evening, 
Ark City captured the title by over- 
powering St. John's 85-43. 

A tremendous crowd jammed the 
gymnasium to see the game. 

Closing in to within six-points mid- 
way in the second quarter, the John- 
nies looked as if they might pull off 
another upset. The huge crowd, real- 
izing this, buzzed with excitement, 
but the Tigers came back strong in 
the closing minutes of the first-half to 
lead by 14 at intermission. 

The second half proved it was just 
a matter of time, as the Bengals raced 
up and down the floor scoring at will. 

Hutchinson took third place with 
an 90-73 win over Independence, de- 
spite the fact that Don Anderson 
scored 46 points. 

Immediately following the games 
trophies were presented by Bob Mc- 
Henry, coach at Independence and 
NJCAA vice-president. 

Big trophies were presented to Ar- 
kansas City, St. John's and Hutchin- 
son. The game ball was presented to 

A special sportsmanship award was 
also presented to the Pirates. 

For winning first and second place, 
players of Ark City and St. John's 
won gold and silver basketballs, re- 

Picked on the all-tournament team 
by the coaches were Joe Hauser and 
Kenneth Ollek, St. John's; Jerry 
Voght, Ft. Scott; Artie Schippers and 

John Winters, Hutchinson; Merle 
Blair and Don Anderson, Indepen- 
dence; Carl Neff, Dodge City; and Jim 
Reed and Linwood Burns, Ark City. 

D-E Club Clears $250 
On To'irney Programs 

Approximately $250 has been added 
to the DE club funds through spon- 
sorship of the programs for the tour- 
ney, J. C. Goodwin club treasurer re- 
ported Monday. 

Club members sold 760 programs at 
15 cents each, which gave them a to- 
tal of $114, plus $330 advertising in- 
come. Expeditures were approximately 

The programs were a big success 
this year due to the addition of team 
pictures, Goodwin believes. 

Eighty programs were given to the 
team members who participated in 
the tournament. 

Air Force Team Here 
In Recruiting- Drive 

Air Force recruiting team found 
juco men interested, if not enthusi- 
astic, Monday and Tuesday, as they 
presented the Air Force story in pic- 
tures, text, and informal conversation 
at their station in the clubroom. Fresh- 
man were encouraged to remain in 
school until graduation, but sopho- 
mores who stopped to view the dis- 
play were given the full treatment 
by the visiting sergeants.

Clubroom Is 
Due for 
New Lighting 

Four long-awaited projects for the 
college clubroom are to be completed 
in the very near future. These four 
include lights, floor work, a second 
pool table, and repair of the juke 

After more than a year of wait- 
ing, lights in the clubroom will fin- 
ally be installed within the next ten 
days by Teter Electric Co. Fixtures 
will not be put at every outlet, but 
will be alternated. A sample fixture 
was put up last week. 

Asphalt tile remains to be laid 
along the north wall, and baseboard 
for the entire room is yet to be in- 
stalled. Both will be completed soon, 
as material is already on hand. 

The old pool table also will take 
on a new look this week as it is 
being entirely recovered. Skip Cleaver 
completed renovation of the rails last 

The new juke box has been ad- 
justed and now is in fine working 
condition, with a surplus of volume. 
An improper replacement made by a 
former owner was the cause of the 
low volume experienced during the 
recent Victory Dance. 

Nine Students, Faculty 

In County Health Workshop 

Nine college students and faculty 
members took part in the County 
Health Workshop March 10, 11, and 
12, at Winfield. 

The workshop featured a panel dis- 
cussion of mental health, with experts 
from medical schools and universities 
acting as consultants. Mrs, Florence 
Goforth participated. 

Others attending included Donna 
Winton and Terry Hodkin on Wednes- 
day, and Dorellis Brown, Cal Subera, 
Cecil McGaugh, Evelyn Mikesell, 
Helen Bittle, and J.K. Day, on Friday. 

Dorellis Brown was chairman of a 
young people's discussion group, and 
Subera participated on a panel. 

Carpentry Class House 
Nearing Completion ; 
Plumbing Installed 

Though progress on the carpentry 
class house has been slowed up some- 
what the past few weeks, because of 
tournaments and other celebrations, 
since the last report the siding, win- 
dows, and outside doors have been 

Plumbing and electrical wiring have 
been installed and the class is now 
able to start putting on the sheet 
rock inside. As soon as this is through 
the boys will lay the floor with only 
the painting and refinishing yet to 
be done. 

Instructor Lawrence Chaplin said 
Monday that if the class was able 
to spend the rest of its time on the 
job, that the house will probably be 
finished before school is out. 

Kahler To Name 
Juco Play 
Within Week 

Dan Kahler, dramatics instructor, 
has announced that the choice of a 
vehicle for the annual college play, to 
be given on May 14 at the junior high 
school auditorium, has been narrowed 
down to four selections, and within the 
next week he will make a final choice. 

Included for consideration are the 
plays, "Two Blind Mice," a comedy; 
"Brighten The Corner," a comedy; 
and "Double Door" and "The Bat" 
both mysteries. 

Mr. Kahler urges all juco students 
interested in trying out for the play 
to do so. All juco students are eligible 
for parts, and have just as good of a 
chance as the members of his drama- 
tics class. Tryouts will commence on 
April 1. 

Members of the dramatics class not 
taking part in the actual play will 
do various duties which go along to 
make the undertaking successful. 

Two new students who entered af- 
ter the second semester enrollment 
are Mrs. Colleen Merriman and Lloyd 
Gladman. Both of these students are 
from Ark City. 

l6 Senior 
Classes Asked 
To Tigerama 

Sixteen high school senior classes 
from Arkansas City and other near- 
by Kansas and Oklahoma towns have 
been invited to attend the 24th annual 
"Tigerama" sponsored by the junior 
college student body on April 23, 
Barbara Circle, student social chair- 
man, has announced. 

Junior college alumni, as usual, 
will also be honored guests of the 
college at the annual fete. 

High school classes to which formal 
invitations have been mailed by Donna 
Harris, secretary of the Student Coun- 
cil, include Arkansas City, Atlanta, 
Belle Plaine, Burden, Caldwell, Cam- 
bridge, Cedar Vale, Sedan, Gueda 
Springs, Oxford, Milton, Milan, South 
Haven, Udall, and Winfield in Kansas, 
and Newkirk, Okla. 

The Tigerama serves as both a 
formal spring party for the junior col- 
lege students and a "get-acquainted" 
party for the high school guests. 
Many out-of-town students have had 
their first contact with the junior col- 
lege at the annual entertainment for 

The bid is to seniors and their spon- 
sors, and does not include other 
persons, Student Council members 
pointed out Wednesday. Date rules 
for college students follow the usual 
pattern, except that local high school 
students below senior rank are ex- 

Dancing at the Tigerama will be to 
the music of Herb Jimmerson and his 
band in the juco auditorium. Dick 
Leu is in charge of the program. 
Games, including ping pong, pool, and 
cards, will be available in the college 

Sara Gilbert in head decorator for 
the event. She will be assisted by 
Morris Jarvis, Jack Hale, Jerry Fife, 
and Leu. Donna Harris is in charge of 
refreshments, which will be served in 
room 104.

This has been a year of firsts for 
Arkansas City Junior College. To be- 
gin with, the sophomores furnish the 
Number One graduating class to do 
their work entirely in our new home. 
This has been rocorded with eminent 
records in sports, forensic, academic, 
and entertainment events. 

Another first is to be written next 
month. The annual effort of the Junior 
College Players is to be presented, 
with Dan Kahler making his initial 
appearance as drama coach. The pro- 
duction, always one of the highlights 
of second semester, is open not only 
to members of the speech department, 
I ut to every student in the college. 
r I his is an opportunity for several 
to take part in the actual acting roles 
and for others to assist in the vitally 
essential, though unglamorous, back- 
stage parts. 

In truth there is a job for every- 
one. The play should be supported 
1 oth in enthusiasm for a quality pro- 
duction and in a salesmanship way to 
the public. The make-believe of the; 
stage characterization will lie offered 
only one night, not for months as 
in athletic events. It should be the 
desire of every student to accept re- 
sponsibility for the wholehearted sale 
of tickets. There's nothing that in- 
spires a superb performance more 
than a proud standing-room-only siijn 
outside the auditorium door. Let's 
give ourselves a record breaking first 
play that will be a challenge for the 
succeeding years.

Ark City Junior College students 
demonstrated their pride in their bas- 
ketball team March 15, by staging 
an all-day celebration honoring their

At an early-morning assembly the 
student body cheered the team and 
congratulations were given to the 
squad by George Gardner, president 
of the Quarter-back Club, and Bill 
Welton, manager of the Fox theaters, 
who added an invitation to a movie 
at the Star theater at 1:30 Monday

non, Linwood Burns, J. C. Louder- 
back, Lafayette Norwood, Seymour 
Seitchick, Frank Scarth, and Jim 
Reed, team members who will be 
graduated from ACJC this year. 

Coach Dan Kahler expressed his 
thanks for a good season and the co- 
operation of the student body. Harry 
Diamond was in charge of the as- 

More than 200 students and fac- 
ulty members attended a picnic at 
Spring Hill Park where hot dogs, 
potato chips, and pop were served by 
a picnic committee composed of Don 
Heflin, Sara Gilbert, and Morris Jar- 

From 7:30 until 11 p.m. students

Have you heard the girls asking 
each other what the word "Glint" 
means? This is the name for the new- 
est club in juco. Only the members 
know the meaning of the name. 

Exclusively for out-of-town girls, 
the idea was originated by Miss Hen- 
rietta Courtright and Mrs. Florence 
Goforth. The first meeting was held 
at the Dorothy Bawner and LaVern 
Rollins apartment. Election of officers 
was held and the following were in- 
stalled in office: 

Arlene Booth, president, Cathy 
Weninger, vice president; W i 1 m a

Judge Rock Talks to 
Business Law Class 
On Labor Relations 

R. R. Rock, plant superintendent 
of the Maurer-Neuer Co. and Judge 
of the Arkansas City Police Court, 
talked to the business law class March 
11, on labor unions and the history of 

Judge Rock gave the history of 
labor unions from the beginning up 
to the present day. 

The problem of labor relations is 
of concern to each and every person, 
he said. 

Evidence of good labor-management 
relations was noted in Arkansas City 
by Judge Rock, who recently testified 
in labor relations cases in Kansas 
City. This was explained, he said, by 
intelligent dealings and by fair treat- 
ment by Arkansas City employers. 

Language Meetings Cancelled 

All language club meetings have 
been cancelled until after April 1, 
Miss Anne Hawley, sponsor, stated 
Monday. She said the reason for the 
postponement was the many events 
on the agenda during the past two 

Arkansas City was represented by 
Paul M. Johnson last week-end as 
government instructors fro>m 30 
schools in the state met at Kansas 
University to attempt to plan a pro- 
gram for interesting college students 
in politics.

der, Gayle Dowser, and Donna Cock- 

March 31 will be the date of the 
next meeting at the Shirley Gregory 
and Sandra Crow apartment. 

Object of the new organization is 
to provide pleasant social relations 
for women whose homes are else- 
where, and who find themselves at 
loose ends when shut off from the 
normal social activities to which they 
have become accustomed in their home 
communities. Since the bulk of Arkan- 
sas City students are living in their 
home community, this problem does 
not exist for them, and few realize 
the needs of the student away from 
home for the first time, sponsors be- 

Gals Plan Rowdy 
Brawl at First 
JC Slumber Party 

There'll mighty little sleepy time, 
but a passel of fun for feminine 
Tiger Action Club members who 
attend the club's first, maybe annual 
"Slumber Party" at the Apco Club 
tomorrow night, according to Dorellis 
"Dody" Brown, TAC president and 
general chairman of the event. 

Male members of TAC are not in- 
vited, Dody says, and she has 
arranged for her pappy, Paul Brown, 
to stand guard with his trusty shootin' 
iron at one door, while Mammy Brown 
covers the other entrance. Inside, in 
various stages of array and dis-array, 
will cavort practically the entire fe- 
male population of ACJC and envir- 
ons, all in rip-snortin' uninhibited at- 

Official sponsors for the gala party 
are Miss Henrietta Courtright, Mrs. 
Florence Goforth, and Mrs. Helen 
Randle, all faculty women. They will 
be aided during the shank of the even- 
ing by two male sponsors of the TAC, 
J. K. Day and Dale Hanson, but the 
males will be banished before the 
party warms up. 

For such part of the entertainment 
as proves organized, members may 
place the blame on Dorellis and 
Dorothy McFarland. Food supplies 
will be rounded up by Janie Schell, 
Peggy Lynch, Myra Morrow, and Sue 
Woodard, who are collecting four bits 
from each participant. 

No arrangements have been made 
to pick up the bodies.

Tigers Place 
Seventh in 
National Meet 

With two victories and two losses 
in the national tournament, the Ark 
City Tigers closed their 1953-54 bas- 
ketball season as the seventh place 
team for all junior colleges in the 
United States, and ended up with a 
record of 25 wins and 5 losses. 

Moberly J.C. of Missouri won the 
National championship by defeating 
Snow College of Ephraim, Utah, 55-49 
in an overtime in the final game Sat- 
urday evening. 

In a battle for fourth place on Sat- 
urday afternoon, the Bengals had 
their coldest game of the year in los- 
ing to Benton Harbor. Ark City hit 
only 21 per cent of their shots, sea- 
son low. 

Ark City advanced to the quarter- 
finals on Tuesday evening by winning 
over Brewton-Parker J.C. of Mt. Ver- 
non, Georgia, 70-54. Linwood Burns 
with 20 points led the Bengals to the 

On Wednesday evening, the Bengals 
were eliminated from championship 
play, losing to Hannibal LaGrnnge 

The next afternoon Northeast Miss- 
issippi of Boonville, Miss., were the 
Tiger opponents in the losers, bracket. 
The contest was even all the way 
until the final period, as the Tigers 
pulled away to a 85-71 win. 

Linwood Burns and Jim Reed were 
named to the honorable mention list 
for the all-tournament team. 

For the Tigers under Coach Dan 
Kahler, it marked the second consec- 
utive year that they went to the na- 
tionals. They have also won the state 
and regional championships two years 
in a row, to run up a two-season won 
and lost record of 55 wins and 10 

Kansas eliminations for the 1954 
NJCAA cage meet will be divided into 
two separate regions, it was decided 
at the NJCAA meeting, held in Hutch- 
inson last week. 

Kansas formerly composed all of 
Region G, which included all the juco's 
in the state. Now, the state will be 
split into Region 6 and Region 3. 

New Student Enrolls 
James Carroll Waggoner, formerly 
of Hutchinson, enrolled March 22 in 
ACJC. James is a transfer from 
Hutchinson Junior College where he 
was a freshman. A graduate of Hutch- 
inson high school, James is living 
with his grandparents on Route 2,

New Bengal Gri 
Proud Record as 

The Arkansas City Juco football 
team will have a new coach for the 
1954 pigskin season as the Arkansas 
City Board of Education finally got 
together and made their selection out 
of 40 or more applicants. 

The newly selected coach, Tommy 
Steigleder, coach of the Bristow High 
School Pirates the past year, was 
chosen by the Board on Tuesday, 
March 9th and will take over his 
duties May 1. 

Coach Steigleder comes to us high- 
ly recommended by Bill Jennings, 
Assistant Football Coach of the na- 
tionally ranked Oklahoma University 
Sooners and has been coaching for 
four years. He started his career at 
Frederick, Okla., where he remained 
three years, compiling a 10 win and 
20 loss record. From here he moved up 
to Bristow and put together a 1 and 9 
record in the tough Northern 8 Con- 
ference which include such powers as 
Ponca City, Stillwater, Cushing, and 
Blackwell. These four years were re- 
ported to he building years by Fred- 
erick and Bristow school officials. 

Steigleder, a pupil of the tricky 
split-T, was a high school star at 
Duncan, Okla., and was quarterback 
for two years for the Cameron Ag- 
gies and led them to the Little Rose 
Bowl in 1947, where he set a record 
for yards gained. 

Stei»'leder is 27 years of age, single, 
and will finish his masters degree 
this summer at Gunnison, Colo.

Besides his coaching duties, Steig- 
leder will teach social science in the 
junior high school. 


A meeting of Athletic Directors and 
Coaches was held several weeks ago 
at El Dorado, Kansas, where num- 
erous subjects were discussed. Foot- 
hall and basketball schedules were the 
main item on the agenda.

Last Tiger Rag 
Pages Are Sent 
To Printer 

Final pages of the "Tiger Rag", 
junior college annual, have gone to 
the printers, and the completed book 
will be ready for distribution some 
time during the last two weeks of the 
semester, A. E. Maag, sponsor, has 

Persons who have not completed 
their $2.50 subscription payments are 
urged to do so immediately, Maag 
said, to avoid confusion when the 
books arrive. Those who have com- 
pleted payment will be served first, 
and other annuals will be sold on a 
first-come, first-serve basis. 

Staff members for the 1954 book 
include Gary Barker, John Shirley, 
Don Heflin, Leon Fitzgerld, Duane 
Arnet, Sara Gilbert, Mel Larson, Lela 
Mclrvin, Donna Ferguson, and Gil- 
bert Daniel. These persons did the 
major part of the work, but many 
others contributed much to the total 
production activity, Maag said. 

Mardi-Gras Is 
Theme of 24th 

"Mardi-Gras" has been chosen for 
the theme for the 24th annual Tig- 
erama, Barbara Circle, college social 
chairman, has announced. 

A committee has been named to 
work out a decoration scheme to carry 
out the theme. It is headed by Sara 
Gilbert, sophomore, who will be aided 
by Jack Hale, Joe Prochaska, Morris 
Jarvis, Dick Leu, and Jerry Fife. 

Refreshments will be provided in 
room 101, Barbara said, and high 
school junior class members will be 
asked to serve, so that college stud- 
ents may spend the full evening in 
entertaining their senior guests. 

Seventeen high school senior classes 
in the area have been invited to at- 
tend Tigerama. Cambridge seniors 
were first to accept. 


Printing Class Goes 

To Wichita on Field Trip 

College and high school printers 
were on a field trip April 7, to Wich- 
ita, to explore the new Wichita Bea- 
con plant and the McCormick- Arm- 
strong Printing Co. Approximately 
30 boys made the annual tour. Year 
before last the printing class visited 
the Oklahoma City Times and Semco 
Color Press. 

A. F. Buffo printing instructor, ex- 
plained that the purpose of these trips 
is to show students how large printing 
companies operate and to see differ- 
ent equipment in opei-ation. 

Dexter Invited 

Due to an error in the last Tiger 
Tales, Dexter high school was omit- 
ted from the list of high school sen- 
ior classes invited to the Tigerama. 

John and Sam Carson 
Qualifying for National Meet 

John and Sam Carson placed second 
in the annual state forensic tourna- 
ment at El Dorado on April 2. This

We all have the privilege of attend- 
ing Junior College in a new building. 
I did say privilege, didn't I? When 
we think' about some of the old build- 
ings which house some colleges around 
the country, I think we could consider 
it a real privilege. 

I hardly ever wonder what this 
will look like five, ten, or even twenty 
years from now. Why should I, since 

I won't be here then. But then on sec- 
ond thought, there will be school go- 
ing on then. Have I ever thought of 
that? Am I careless with the property 
which belongs to the school? Do I 
really treat the clubroom equipment 

Stop and ask yourself these ques- 
tions. If each one of us accepts our re- 
sponsibility to be more careful with 
the school equipment, maybe our 
school will look like new, twenty 
years from now. Let's give it a try.

Females of TAC Sleep Little, 
Shout Much at Slumber Party 

Tiger Sophomores 
Play in Last Game 

Eight sophomores ended their juco 
basketball careers on March 23, by 
downing the faculty 85-64 before a 
near-capacity crowd at the gymn- 

The game, sponsored by the ath- 
letic department and student council, 
saw the Tigers at their best with pro- 
fessional-like clowning, terrific shoot- 
ine, and passing. 

The Tiger sophs were coached by 
Tony Rendulich, freshman, and Dan 
Stark piloted the faculty. 

In a preliminary tilt, Merle Hinton's 
junior police teams performed, with 
the Blues defeating the Golds, 14-11. 

Playing in Tiger colors for the 
final time were Linwood Burns, Jim 
Reed, Lafayette Norwood, Reece Bo- 
hannon, J. C. Louderback, Frank 
Scarth, Wayne Thompson and Cy 

This group, under Dan Kahler, 
have won 55 games and lost 10 in 
their two years in Ark City. 

"Why don't you guys turn out the 
lights and go to bed?" 

That remark was used very often 
Friday night at the TAC slumber 
party. By holding the get-together at 
the APCO Club House there was 
something to entertain everyone. 
Everyone participated in the volley 
ball games and it was revealed that 
Miss Hennrietta Courtright was a 
very good player. 

Ping-pong seemed to interest the 
majority, and there was always a 
crowd around the table watching or 
waiting to play. Anyone who had 
never played Mrs. Florence Goforth 
was really in for a surprise. Her serves 
literally knocked one over, and that 
back hand was always "cosmic", some 
observers said. 

From 12:30 on girls started to give 
up the battle and go to sleep. However 
there are always those who never 
give up, and the>e were certainly a 
great number of those at this shindig. 

Between Donna Harris and Janie 
Sehell dancing all night, and Dona 
Reeves' "army" with their water 
guns, the evening was both musical 
and wet. 

Students who haven't played bad- 
minton at 3 a. m. just haven't lived, 
some opined, and the way Wilma 
Reece and Ailene McKee played was 
termed "hysterical, beating their 
brains out to hit a little do-dad back 
and forth." 

After a fashion, most of the girls 
were finally asleep, although there 
wasn't much of it. Around 5:30 those 
who were awake started awakening 
the other sleeping beauties. The three 
faculty members, Mrs. Goforth, Mrs. 
Helen Randle, and Miss Courtright, 
and Mrs. Paul Brown prepared a 
breakfast that was enjoyed by every- 

Since this party turned out to be 
such a successful affair, the TAC is 
planning to make it an annual event 
for the female members of the club. 

Bengal Basketeers 
Fete Season's Close 
With Dinner Dance 

The Country Club was the scene 
of a happy gathering last Friday 
evening as the Tiger basketball team 
celebrated with a dinner-dance, en- 
tertaining wives and dates. 

During the evening awards were 
made to Dr. Nick Turner and Art 
Sneller for outstanding contribution 
to athletics. 

Both men received letter sweaters 
and certificates. Letters will be 
awarded at a later date. The pre- 
sentations were made by team co- 
captains, Linwood Burns and Jim 

Eight Tiger sophomores, and team 
manager Max Marsland and Assistant 
Coach "Bunt" Speer gave short 
speeches. The boys expressed their 
gratitude to the city, school and 

Flayers who talked were Reed, 
Burns, Lafayette Norwood, J. C. Lou- 
derback, Seymour Seitchick, Wayne 
Thompson, Reece Bohannon, and 
Frank Scarth. 

Coach Dan Kahler acted as master 
of ceremonies. The entire program 
was short and informal. 

Attending as special guests of the 
team besides Turner and Sneller 
were Orville Gregory, Dean K. R. 
Calle, and Athletic Director Amos 
Curry and their wives. 

Marine Recruiting Team 
Here To Seek Candidates 
For Officer Training 

The Marines landed in Arkansas 
City again today in the persons of 
Capt. Tom. L. Gibson and two Marine 
sergeants representing the Marines 
Corps Officer Procurement Office from 
Kansas City, Mo. 

Their purpose here is to advise 
male students of what their military 
obligations are and how to meet them. 
Captain Gibson stated that there have 
been a few changes since their last 
visit. For instance anyone enlisting in 
the Platoon leaders Class after June 
1, 1954 will have to do three years 
of active duty instead of the present 
two. He also said he was limited in 
the number he could accept, five 
freshmen and five sophomores be- 
tween now and June. 

All training is done during the sum- 
mer months and those selected for the 
program will be given draft deferment 
until they have completed college. 
Captain Gibson and his team were 
located in the Clubroom. 

Dan Stark took his fourth hour 
geology class on an afternoon field 
trip March 22. After meeting at the 
school the class proceeded to Camp 
Horizon and on south [following 
country roads finally ending up at 
Newkirk. The purpose of the trip 
was to note evidence of water erosion. 
On the return trip the three ears 
stopped at 140 Foot Hill so the group 
could view much of the countryside.

Alumni Organization 
Strives To Aid Juco 

In June 1952, the Alumni Associa- 
tion of Arkansas City Junior College 
was formed at a special meeting held 
in the new building, even before the 
building was officially opened, or a 
class held in it. 

Officers elected at the meeting were 
Dr. Wallace Newberry, '42, Arkansas 

C. D. "Bud" Higby, Jr. 

City veterinarian, president; Mrs. 
Duana Elder, Arkansas City, '42, vice 
president; and Tom Pringle, ex '42, 
Ark City lawyer, secretary-treasurer. 

Shirley Gregory, '55, and Robert 
Lindly, '54, were united in marriage 
Friday morning, in Wichita. Atten- 
dants were Sandra Crow and Donald 

This special edition is the first of 
what is hoped will be a long line of 
alumni publications. Letters to the 
secretary of the association or the 
college office will provide material 
for an interesting issue in the fall. 

Since 1952, the alumni group has 
held two meetings, elected new offi- 
cers, and helped the school in several 

This striving young organization 
is going all out to aid juco, as the 
former presdient and now a driving 
factor in the association, Dr. New- 
berry stated: 

"Our purpose is to aid and encour- 
age ACJC. We're interested in rais- 
ing the school to the highest possible 

New officers were elected in June, 
1953, at third meeting. Bud Higby '41, 
Ark City insurance man, is now presi- 
dent, Carolyn Hinsey Applegate, '51, 
vice-president, and Rita Bowen, Ar- 
kansas City elementary teacher, sec- 

A fourth meeting will be held dur- 
ing the Christmas holidays of 1954. 
New officers will be elected at that 
time. Perhaps some sort of a reunion 
or get-together will also be planned. 

At present the main project of the 
alumni group is to increase its mem- 
bership. In order to accomplish this, 
an up-to-date address list of all for- 
mer juco students is necessary. 

All alumni are urged to send their 
addresses to: 

Arkansas City Junior College Alumni 
Association, P. 0. Box 490, 
Arkansas City, Kansas 

Activities of the alumni during the 
past year include aiding the Quarter- 
back Club with the alumni-Juco foot- 
ball and basketball games, helping 
to start the movement for uniforms 
for the Tiger band, sponsorship of the 
drive which successfully raised $75 
for a band for the 1953 victory cele- 
bration for the Tiger championship 
basketball team, and assembling a 
partial roster of juco alumni and for- 
mer students. 

In the coming year, the Alumni 
Association is planning to do bigger 
and better things for juco. 

Dean K. R. Galle is very much en- 
thused with the association. He says 

"It is an important step in the 
right direction. We in the school are 
very much interested in maintaining 
our contact with former students."

"A man is known by the company 
he keeps," the ancient adage says, 
and by the same token, a school is 
known by the quality of its alumni. 

From the halls of the present build- 
ing and the past juco basement in the 
high school building, have graduated 
some of today's most successful men 
and women in our town and out. 

The fame of Arkansas City's Junior 
College is spreading far and wide. 
Former students who have become 
successful in law, medicine, service 
careers, teaching, and as artisans are 
telling other people about the"good 
old days." Our juco has turned out 
students who have gone to the top 
ever since the beginning of the estab- 
lishment in 1922. 

In the future there will be more 
alumni and many more successful 
men and women. Juco is just another 
step higher and in this fast-moving 
world a student has to become more 
versatile than in past years. 

The present generation of ACJC is 
proud to be associated with this good- 
ly company.

Bengal Netmen 
March on to 
Fourth Win 

The Tiger netmen continued to dom- 
inate junior college tennis in Kansas 
by winning three more matches in the 
last two weeks to stretch their win- 
ning streak to four straight and six- 
teen over a two-year span. 

Included in their three wins was a 
5-2 victory over a previously unde- 
feated Southwestern College team, a 
four-year school. The matches were 
played at the Builders' courts. South- 
western holds wins over Friends Uni- 
versity and Wichita University. 

In the Bengal-Builder match, F. 
Scarth won over Cobb, 6-0, 6-3; L. 
Scarth over Wise, 6-4, 6-4; Louder- 
back lost to Hays, 6-4, 4-6, 5-7; Shir-

at Wilson Park. 

In the St. John's tilt, Jim Reed lost 
his first match of the year after sud- 
denly becoming ill at the end of the 
first set. Prior to that Reed seemed 
well on his way to an easy victory. 

Hutchinson, considered to be one 
of the strongest net teams in juco 
circles, proved to be "easy pickings" 
for the veteran Ark City team. 

With Larry and Frank Scarth, Jim 
Reed, and John Schirley and J. C. 
Louderback winning without too much 
effort, Coach Ray Judd played Shakey 
Bill Elrod in one of the doubles 

He was teamed with J. C. Lou-

KU Chancellor 
Speaker for 3 1st 

Chancellor Franklin D. Murphy of 
the University of Kansas has been 
chosen speaker at the 1954 Commence- 
ment exercises, May 28, for the junior 
college sophomores and the high 
school seniors. 

It will be the 31st annual commen- 
cement for Arkansas City Juco. 

Murphy is nationally famous as the 
author of the Kansas Rural Health 
Plan, for which he was elected one of 
the ten outstanding young men of the 
nation by the National Junior Cham- 
ber of Commerce in 1949. Although 
only 38 years old, Chancellor Murphy 
has held many positions of impor- 
tance. He was Dean of the School of 
Medicine at Kansas University prior 
to his appointment as Chancellor. 

The Rev. Robert L. Cashman, pastor 
of the Trinity Episcopal Church, will 
speak at the baccalaureate services on 
May 23 in the auditorium-gymnasium. 

College graduates, who will be clad 
in the traditional blue caps and 
gowns, will be escorted in the aca- 
demic procession by four freshman 
women, wearing white caps and 
gownns. They are Dona Reeves, Marj- 
orie Ramsey, Terry Hodkin, and Phyl- 
lis Boyle. 


Former Juco Students Now 

Running For Political Office 

Two former juco students are an- 
nounced candidates for state political 
office, subject to the August primary 

George Templar, who attended juco 
in the 20's, is a Republican candidate 
for governor of Kansas, and Doyle 
White, who attended at various times 
from 1933 to 1936, is a Democratic 
candidate for the office of District 
Judge, which office is held currently 
by Lawrence Christenson, a Republi- 
can and a 1935 graduate. 

Gary Hesket Is Juco's Own 
Promoter of Freak Shows 

Juco has come up with its own 
Barnum and Bailey show in the per- 
son of Gary Hesket, freshman from 
Arkansas City. 

Recently, Hesket came to school 
with a catfish he had caught in a 
nearby creek. The fish had no eyes, 
and was on display in J. K. Day's 

A few days later, Gary had a treat 
for juco students when he showed 
up with a two-headed pig. The ani- 
mal was 20 hours old when he died 
in Mr. Day's room. 

The pig was born on Gary's grand- 
father's farm southwest of town. 

0. L. Gladman, a candidate for 
graduation, has already completed pre- 
enrollment for the 1954 summer ses- 
sion at Wichita U. He will take bus- 
iness administration. 

Tiger Rag Due 
For Delivery 

That the 1954 Tiger Rag is expected 
to be delivered to subscribers some 
time during the day tomorrow, it was 
announced by A. E. Maag, faculty 
adviser, today. 

Only a few extra copies remain, 
Maag said, and should be purchased, 
at $2.50 each, immediately. 

The Tiger Rag this year will have 
a black leatherette cover with a tiger 
imprint. This year's annual is expected 
to be about 12 pages larger than last 
year's book. 

Gilbert Daniels, Gary Baker, and 
Mr. Maag drove to Oklahoma City 
April 20 to proofread the 1954 book. 
They also prepared the pictorial sec- 
tion for the new college catalog, using 
annual pictures.

first alumni paper was presented this 
year and it is hoped that this can be- 
come an annual event.

Be Qua ! ! 

An- important significance to the 
forthcoming graduating exercises on 
May 28th is that the "54" cjass is 
the first to complete their two years 
of 'College in the new building. 

Being first is nothing new to our 
hard working sophomores. Looking 
back into the last two years we find 
Ark City Juco at the top in the var- 
ious fields of academic life which has 
brought state-wide and even national 
recognition to our school. 

Our athletic, forensics and business 
organizations have certainly exempli- 
fied the high standards of our school 
by their championship performances 
in competitive meetings with other 

Now as we complete our two years 
at juco and go into the world to earn 
our way, the important element to 
remember is to always strive for first. 
Set your goals to the very top and 
never settle for anything less. 

The Tiger Tales staff has enjoyed 
following and writing your exploits 
during the past two-years. Now the 
staff offers congratulations to you 
sophomores. You've done a great job. 
Hail and farewell!

Bright Prospects 
For Tiger 
Music Activities 

Bright is the outlook for the mu- 
sical activities of the college this 

The band has approximately 25 
members at the present time and has 
prospects of adding about 15 more 
musicians. They are now working on 
pep songs and some classical music 
and Director August Trollman hopes 
to have the group march in the Ark- 
alalah parade. 

Trollman also is considering com- 
bining the band with the vocal groups 
for a concert in order to raise money 
toward the betterment of the mu- 
sic department. He stated that he 
believes the college will have a very 
fine band this year, and that it is 
actually the first year the college has 
had a "real band." 

The band has never gone to any 
out of town games except the national 
cage tourney, but there is a possi- 
bility of some trips this year. Mr. 
Trollman also mentioned the fact 
that the band will welcome any stu- 
dents who play instruments to join 
the class, which meets Monday, Wed- 
nesday and Thursday during the third 

Also important in the instrumental 
department is the orchestra also con- 
ducted by Mr. Trollman. He has ten 
or twelve string players enrolled now 
and hopes for more. He especially 
needs cello players. This group meets 
third hour on Tuesday and Friday. 

Awaiting new music to use are the 
43 members of the Junior College 
Chorus, which meets Tuesday and 
Friday at 9:48, under the direction 
of Laurence Hull. The group lacks 
sopranos and tenors and will welcome 
anyone who wishes to lend their tal- 
ents. Accompanying the chorus is 
Gail White. 

Special ensembles may be organ- 
ized at a later date, if the demand 

Mr. Hull is also teaching class 
voice, but due to the fact that there 
are only two students enrolled, the 
instruction has become individual. 

The five members of Hull's music 
appreciation class are looking for- 
ward to an enjoyable class when they 
get a record player. They are consid- 
ering several interesting plans for 
the year. More definite information 
on this calss will soon be available. 

Students Meet Faculty, Take 
Classification Tests First Day 

Orientation proceedure for Juco 
students began with an assembly at 
9 a. m., September 7, in the junior 
college auditorium. To open the pro- 
gram, students joined in singing "God 
Bless Aemrica," led by August Troll- 
man, instrumental instructor, follow- 
ed by a prayer given by J. Kelsey 
Day, science instructor. 

Dr. Jerry J. Vineyard, superinten- 
dent of schools, Dean K. R. Galle, and 
Joe Herr, student council president, 
were introduced and each offered a 
word of welcome to all new students. 

Introducing and acquainting stu- 
dents with college faculty members 
was accomplished by an informal 
presentation in description and song, 
directed by Allen Maag, speech and 
history instructor. 

A short talk by the Rev. George 
Dick, pastor of the First Baptist 
Church, and the singing of the school 
Alma Mater completed the program. 

The remainder of the day was spent 
with all entering students attending 
Juco for the first time taking classi- 
fication tests. At 3 p. m., an informal 
social was held in the college club- 

Orientation activities were under 
the general direction of Mrs. Flor- 
ence Goforth, guidance director. Tests 
taken by entering students will be 
scored by Mrs. Goforth, and results 
will be interpreted to individual stu- 
dents in guidance conferences design- 
ed to give the student greater know- 
ledge of himself and his potentialities, 
Mrs. Goforth explained. 

College Clubroom Shows 
Steady Course of Development 

Students give college recreation room facilities maximum use, as shown 
by these photos taken last week. The clubroom is open daily from 7:30 a. m. 
until 4:45 p. m. 

Cecil B. Hawkins, Jr., 1952-53 Stu- 
dent Council president, has recently 
completed carrier training for the 

A new clock, "buzzer, and more 
lights are to be placed in the the 
Juco clubroom in the near future. A 
coffeee machine and a larger candy 
machine were installed this summer 
in addition to the two pop machines 
and three candy machines already 
there, and a milk vending machine 
made its appearance over the week- 

The recreation provision is a pro- 
ject of the college student council. 
Students who moved into the build- 
ing when it was opened in 1951 found 
only bare concrete walls and no par- 
titions in the basement area. They 
bought paint and materials and in- 
stalled the tile floor. Board of Edu- 
cation members were so impressed 
they ordered the partitions built dur- 
ing the summer of 1953. 

Purchases last year included one 
pool table, the juke box, and the large 

pop vender. Approximately $2,000 of 
student funds have gone into the pro- 
ject, all earned by concessions sales 
at college games or by clubroom ven- 
ding machines. 

Don Payne, Geuda Springs sopho- 
more, is student manager of the club- 

Recreation equipment includes two 
pool tables, three ping pong tables, 
and several card tables. Another ping 
pong table may be installed if needed. 


No more broken bones due to the 
lack of steps at the north entrance 
to the east wing of the academic 
building. The college carpentry class, 
under the direction of L. A. Chaplin, 
has constructed an aid to safety and 
convenience of all concerned. It's a

Five Instructors 
New to Campus 
For Fall Term 

Five new teachers have been add- 
ed to the faculty of A. C. J. C. for 
the coming year, replacing four whose 
jobs were vacated. This represents a 
shifting a assignments rather than an 
increase in faculty, however, school 
authorities pointed out. 

Laurence Hull, from Woodston, 
Kans., and a graduate of Fort Hays 
State College, is now instructing the 
chorus classes. Charles L. Hinchee, 
former chorus instructor, resigned 
during the summer because of his 
health, after 25 years service on the 
music staff. 

Miss Mary Wilson is the new 
teacher for the commerce classes. 
Miss Wilson's home town is Winfield, 
an dshe is a graduat of Southwest- 
ern College, also having done some 
graduate work at the University of 
Wyoming. Former commerce teacher 
Dale Hanson is now teaching in the 
Oklahoma Baptist University, while 
doing advance work on a doctor's de- 
gree at Oklahoma University. 

Mrs. Lillie Zimmerman Nicholson 
and Miss Clara Bell are teaching the 
elementary education classes former- 
ly handled by Howard Park, who is 
now operating a local music studio. 
Mrs. Nicholson has formerly taugh 
in the junior high school and is now 
employed in both the junior high and 
in the junior college. Miss Bell, who 
teaches a childrens' literature class 
as well as in the elementary grades 
is herself a former Juco student. 

W. G. "Bunt" Speer, former Tiger 
football coach, has been replaced by 
Tommy Steigleder of Bristow, Okla. 
Mr. Steigleder is a graduate of Ed- 
mond State Teachers College, Ed- 
mond, Okla. Speer is now teaching 
full time in the junior high school. 

Tiger Action Club 
Names McFarland 
New President 

Things got rolling for the Tiger 
Action Club at their first meeting 
of the year Wednesday, September 15 
with J. K. Day advisor presiding. He 
was relieved shortly by Dorothy Mc- 
Farland, sophomore, who was elected 
to the position of president of the or- 
ganization for the coming year. As 
she took over her duties, the other 
officers were chosen. Janie Gates is 
vice president and program chairman 
and has as her assistants Beverly 
Boswell and Daphne Dillard. Kathy 
Weninger is the newly-elected secre- 
tary and Myra Morrow will repre- 
sent the TAC on the Student Coun- 

The TAC is the pep and service 
club of the college and is behind 
nearly all activities of the school. In 
past years the members have partici- 
pated in activities such as selling at 
concessions, serving the football ban- 
quet, ushering at games and plays. 

Language Clubs Will 
Organize About Oct. 1 

Miss Anne Hawley, language in- 
structor, has announced plans for the 
organization of Le Cercle Francais, 
Der Deutsche Verein, and El Circulo 
Espanol, on or about October 1. These 
language clubs meet one or two eve- 
nings a month for the purpose of help- 
ing students improve facilities in lan- 
guage usage and to learn more about 
the customs and countries being stud- 

Two or three social events are 
scheduled for each organization in- 
cluding a picnic and breakfast. The 
programs consist of reports, talks by 
visitors of the country studied, and 
games and songs in foreign languages. 

Membership in each of the clubs is 
open to anyone taking a language 
language in high school, 
now or who has had one year of the 

Tigers Run 
Wild Against 
Alumni Team 

The Arkansas City Juco Tigers op- 
ened their 1954 football season with a 
crushing victory over the Alumni at 
Curry Field, Sept. 10, 58-0. 

The former Juco greats were no 
match for the fast moving, hard rush- 
ing Tigers. After only minutes of the 
first quarter Jim Estep broke lose for 
a 26-yard touchdown drive. Berklie 
Perico made good the conversion and 
the Tigers were out in front 7-0. 
Again in the first period the Juco 
made good another six points on a 
20-yard pass from Bill Richey to 
Berklie Perico. The attempt for the 
extra point was missed. 

At the start of the second quar- 
ter the Tigers marched to the Alumni 
6-yard line. Then on a pass from Jan 
Chapman to Perico, the Bengals 
counted another marker. The con- 
version was no good and the score 
read Juco 20, Alumni 0. In the last 
few seconds of the second period, 
halfback Pat Koehler raced from the 
12 for another tally. The Juco Tigers 
led at half time 26 to 0. 

On the first play after the kickoff 
Marc Duckett galloped 71 yards to 
pay dirt. Perico's kick was good, and 
the Tigers led 33 to 0. Still in the 
third quarter Max Choate went all 
the way on a run from the 12-yard 
line. The kick was no good. Later in 
the same period Kent Venable went 
26 yards for another TD. The try for 
point was no good. The fourth quarter 
yielded two more touchdowns. The 
first was on a 40-yard run by Ven- 
able, the second on a 37-yard drive by 
Jerry Smith. Smith also made good 
the extra point. At the final gun the 
score board read the Juco Tigers 58, 
the Alumni 0.

Tigers Bust 
Broncs 28-0 
In Loop Opener 

The ever-spirited Tiger footballers 
romped over Garden City's Broncs 
last Friday night 28 to 0, in their 
conference opener. Superior line play 
and wonderful ball carrying b ythe 
Tigers were the paramount factors 
in the decisive victory, won on the 
Broncs' home field. 

Berklie Perico, glue-fingered, sure- 
footed, and a product of Ark City 
High, led the scoring wih 18 points. 
Perico caught touchdown passes of 
9 and 35 yards from Bill Richey and 
Jan Chapman, respectively. He con- 
verted perfectly after all four touch- 
downs. Marc Duckett and Kent Ven- 
able scored the other touchdowns on 
3 and 10-yard runs respectively. 

Mac Choate, Mangum, Okla's, loss 
and Ark City's gain, made a magnif- 
icent 70-yard run to set up Venable's 
score. Choate, who was splendid 
throughout the night, rushed 219 
yards in 15 carries for the phenom- 
enal average of 14.6 yards per try. 
Mac, who went touchdownless for 
the first time in his entire career, 
received high praise from Coach 

Coach Steigleder was pleased with 
the teams showing as a whole, and 
lauded the line work of Tom Davis, 
Jay Woodard, Chuck Watson, Dick 

Watson, Phil Mitchell, Don Cummins,

carried the ball 13 times for 70 yards 
and a 5.4 average, and Jim Estep, 
who ruhsed 87 yards in 17 attempts 
for a 5.1 average, scintillated in the 
Tiger backfield and received com- 
ments to this effect.

junior college student body on "the 
marks of an educated man" at the as- 
sembly September 29. The college stu-

mark of education, and reminded stu- 
dents that college provides only the 
opportunity to gain an education.

and high school vocal instructor, sang 
two selections, "When I Look Upon 
the Maidens", and "Little David

sales campaign song, for the promo- 
tion of sales of the annual, the Tiger 
R?g, sung by Shirley Flick, Lodine 
Heir, Sue Huffman, Janice Waggoner, 
Paula Craig, Joanna Samford, Kitten 
Londerbsck, and Jane Gates. 

Harry Diamond acted as master of 
ceremonies for the assembly.

West Side Parkers 
Of Likely Arrest 

Chief of Police Paul Lesh informed 
•a Tiger Tales reporter Monday that 
students who park cars on the west 
side of Second Street are doing so 
at their own risk. Lesh stated that 
anyone parking in the two blocks in 
front of either the junior college or 
the high school are liable to arrest 
for illegal parking. The "No Parking" 
signs that have been knocked down 
will be replaced and the law enforced.

future, but until then parking will be 
difficult and parking on the west side 
of the street is prohibited by city or-

In Retirement 

Charles L. Hinchee, veteran vocal 
director in the Arkansas City public

because of his health. 

Mr. Hinchee came to Ark City in 
1929 and directed chorus in high 
school while teaching some classes in 
the junior high school. Shortly after 
the war he directed the high school 
band and orchestra while leading the 
chorus cl s"°s in the junior college. 

Hinchee directed the Arkalalah col- 
oration ceremonies for a number of 
years, and regularly produced the 
high school operetta. The annual 
'•Christmas gift" to the community, 
Handel's "Messiah," was estibiish-.-d

Pep Rally and Parade 

Attracts Large Downtown Crowd 




Students and townsfolk gather in close at Summit and Fifth to cheer the 
Lcn.,a! gridmen in the year's first street rally. 

Energy and enthusiasm were key 
notes at the college pep rally and par- 
ade, September 23 as the high-spirited 
and colorful Juco student body showed downtown Ark Citians they were 
behind their team all the way. 

The parade assembled at the junior 
college and proceeded to each down- 
town intersection, where the cheer- 

leaders and the Juco band entertained 
the attentive onlookers. At the head 
of the parade were several attractive 
signs prepared by or under the di- 
rection of Bruce Bittle. The football 
team, rode in style on a fire truck, 
furnished by the Arkansas City Fire 

Jerry Fife was in charge of all par- 
ade arrangements. 

odkin Ss Number 2 


An old and familiar "must" at the 
football games is the concession stand 
which is under the able direction of 
Terry Hodkin, student council financ- 
ial chairman. Terry is assisted by the 
always willing and helpful Lyle Eat- 

The stand is located at the north- 
east corner of Curry field. At each 
game, seven or eight girls, under the 
guidance of Terry, work feverishly 
supplying the fans with hotdogs, pop, 
coffee, popcorn, gum, and candy. 
These girls may be anyone who is in- 
terested in helping with the sales, 
but they are usually active members 
of the Tiger Action Club. They are 
responsible for preparing and serving 
the refreshments, and for cleaning the 
concession stand after each game. 

The work of these is cut to a great 
extent by the assistance of seven boys, 
who also volunteer their services, and 
operate a sub station under direction 
of Eaton. From a truck, located at the 

north end of the west stadium, they 
serve hotdogs, pop, and coffee. 

The money received from the con- 
cession sales is used for buying cheer- 
leader uniforms, equipment for the 
clubrooms, socials, Tigerama, and 
many othpr sohool activities. 

Terry wishes to thank everyone who 
has helped her with this work, this 
year, for their cooperation. Anyone 
wishing to help at anytime, may get 
in touch with Terry, and she says 
she'll welcome them. 

Terry was awarded her "A" and 
letter sweater by the student council 
as a freshman last year, moving up 
from assistant chairman when Peggy 
Trent Hadicke left school at midterm. 
A freshman will be named by the coun- 
cil soon to understudy Terry, and to 
be advanced to chairman for next 
year. Interested persons who aspire 
to this number two student body posi- 
tion are requested to apply to Terry 
or to Joe Herr, council president.

Mavericks Cage 
Tiger Eleven 
By l6-l4 Count 

The suprisingly strong Northern 
Oklahoma Junior College Mavericks 
downed the Arkansas City Juco 
Tigers 16-14 in a grueling contest at 
Tonkawa, September 30. It was slow- 
moving, hard-fought, seesaw battle 
all the way, with neither team show- 
ing superior force. 

The Tigers were the first to hit pay 
dirt. Late in the first quarter the Ben- 
gals took the ball on their own 16- 
yard line and began to move down 
field. The Tigers went to the Mave- 
ricks 44 on a pass from Bill Richey 
to Berklie Perico, then Mack Choate 
cracked to the Tonkawa 22. Jerry 
Smith carried to the one and Choate 
took it over. Perico's kick was good 
and the Tigers were in front 7-0. 

In the second quarter Tonkawa 
got their chance on a fumble by the 
Tigers on their own 44. Four plays 
later the Mavericks were knocking 
on the door. A clipping penalty 
against the Tigers took the ball to 
the one-yard line. Tonkawa scored 
two plays later from the 6-inch mirk. 
The kick was also good. At half time 
the score was knotted, 7-7. 

Early in the third quarter, Ton- 
kawa took the ball to their own 45- 
yard line. Their fullback started on 
a run and fumbled. The ball rolled 
wildly, getting awav from one player 
after another, finally a Tonkawa back 
••cooped up the free ball and headed 
down the far side line for another 
score. The attempt for conversion was 
blocked by Jay Woodward and Bill 

After receiving the kick from Ton- 
kav a the Tigers were unable to make 
the necessary yardage pnd had to 
punt. Tonkawa received the kick on 
th°ir own 20 and besran to move up 
field. Their drive ended on the Tieer's 
4-yard marker. Tonkawa then attemp- 
ted a field goal. The 3-point try was 

Still in the third quarter the Tigers 
got on the move with large chunks 
df yardage knocked off by Choate, 
Richey and Estep. A pass from Richey, 
from the Maverick's 37, hit Perico 
for the touchdown. The conversion by 
Perico was good. 

In the fourth quarter the ball 
changed hands several times with 
Tonkawa trying to maintain the 2- 
peint lead. As the game ended the 
Tigers were trying desperately to 

It was the second consecutive loss 
to non-conference foe for the Bengals, 
but does not effect the Kansas junior 
college league standings.

Tigers Drop 
Home Opener to 
Cameron Aggies 

Aggie power proved to be too much 
for the game Tiger eleven ,and the 
Bengals suffered their first defeat of 
the 1954 football season to the husky, 
well-organized Cameron Aggies, 26 to 
14. The game was played before a 
near-capacity crowd at Curry Field 
September 24. 

The Tigers drew first blood in the 
first quarter when Marcellus Duck- 
ett recovered an Aggie fumble on the 
Cameron 41-yard line. The Tigers met 
a stiff defense on the first two plays 
then Bill Richey passed to Tommy 
Davis. The pass was incomplete, but 
interference was ruled against the 
Agg-ies on their own 18. Again as 
Richey passed to Davis, the pass was 
partially blocked, but the ball fell in- 
to the alert arms of Davis and the 
Bengals had a touchdown. Berklie 
Perico's kick was good and the Tigers 
were out in front 7-0 as the first 
quarter ended. 

In the second quarter Cameron re- 
covered an Ark City fumble on the 
Tiger 25 and seven plays later the 
Aggie quarterback went around end 
for the first Sooner touchdown. The 
conversion was good and the score 
was tied 7-7. 

As the second half got under way 
the score was still locked at a 7-7 
deadlock. Early in the third quarter 
C: meron took Perico's kick on their 
own 9-yard line and drove in 12 plays 
to their second touchdawn. The kick 
was no good and the Aggies were out 
in front 13-7. 

The fourth quarter found the 
Aggies still on the move, driving all 
the way from their own 45 to pay 
dirt. The conversion was no good. The 
Tigers got rolling in the last six min- 
utes of the game on two nice 28 and 
31-yard runs by Mack Choate. Due- 
kett went over from the 7-yard line. 
The try for point was good. 

In the last minutes of the game 
Cameron started a sustained drive 
from its 37 and went all the way. 
The conversion was good and the 
final score was 26 to 14. 

Bengals to Face 
Grizzlies, Red 
Ravens on Grid 

The Tigers will host the El Dorado 
Grizzlies this coming Friday, and then 
trek to Coffeyville the following week 
for an entanglement with the Red 
Ravens. Both of these Jayhawk Juco 
conference powers were pre-season 
favorites for the title and still rank 
high after two weeks of conference 

The Red Ravens are sporting a 4 
and record going into this week's 
game with Hutchinson, while the 
Grizzlies have a 2 and 1 mark to show 
for their season's play. Last week they 
lost to Coffeyville 7 to in a hard 
fought battle. Coffeyville's other three 
victims were non-conference foes of 
Missouri and Oklahoma; while, EI 
Dorado has bested Parsons 30 to 
and overpowered Dodge City 47 to 0. 

Coach Long of the Red Ravens- 
stresses a good defense with an of- 
fense that grinds out yardage on 
power plays; Coach Bob Douglass has 
a light team with a couple of break- 
away runners as his chief scoring 
punch at El Dorado.

An assembly featuring student tal- 
ent was held Wednesday morning, 
October 13, at 9:48 in the junior col- 
lege auditorium. 

As the student body arrived, they 
were given a rousing welcome to the 
strains of "The Saints Go Marching 
In", played by the juco band. Under 
the direction of August Trollman, the 
band also played the unforgettable 
"Tea For Two"' and "Khaki Bill". 

Harry Diamond, assembly chair- 
man, emceed the program, and intro- 
duced the local talent. 

Evelyn Henderson, with her guitar, 
was especially well received when she 
played and sang a hill billy hit, 
"Tennessee Wig Walk". Her yodelling 
brought howls of approval. 

The audience was held more or less 
spellbound when Bill Walker, playing 
the harmonica, gave a wonderful 
"rendition" of "Jezebel" and "The 
Whiffenpoof Song". 

John "Tonsils" Gillespie, accom- 
panied at the piano by Gail White, 
sang a beautiful bass solo, "That 
Lucky 01' Sun". John dedicated this 
song to the "hard working faculty". 

The house was brought down with 
two humorous readings by Freddie 
"Hans Christen" Wilson. The student 
body was kept in an uproarious 
laughter with Freddie's able presen- 
tation of "Little Red Riding Hood" 
and "The Three Little Pigs", slightly 

The local "Big time dance boy", 
Clifford Breeden, thrilled the audience 
with his grace and skill in a modern 
dance, demonstrating the agilty which 
won him the position of head cheer- 

A faculty talent assembly is being 
planned for the very near future, but 
t v e assembly committee is experienc- 
ing some difficulty in obtaining 
commitments from possible perform- 

The cost of a "refreshing pause" 
in the Juco clubrooms will be raised 
in the near future. The regular coke 
machine has been removed for al- 
terations and when it is returned the 
cost of a coke will be 6 cents. Club- 
room sponsor P. M. Johnson said the 
new procedure was due to the fact 
that the price of pop has risen.

Tigers Wreck 
Red Ravens' 

Tigers showed their defensive 
strength as they downed the previous- 
ly unbeatable Coffeyville, on October 

Coffeyville won the toss and elected 
to receive. Hall returned the punt to 
his own 41. The Javatowners were un- 
able to move and were forced to kick 
on fourth down. The kick went out on 
the Arkats 24-yard line, as the Tigers 
were also unable to make the neces- 
sary yardage. Coffeyville took the ball 
out of bounds on the Tiger 39. Nine 
rushing plays netted C'ville three first 
downs, down to the Tiger 7-yard line 
when Choate grabbed a Raven pass to 
stop the TD drive. Each team ex- 
changed punts with minutes remain- 
ing in the quarter. 

Tigers Score First 
The Bengals took over the ball on 
their own 26 late in the period. Two 
rushing plays netted 7-yards, and on 
the next play Richey faked up the 
middle to Choate and wide to Smith, 
then handed off to Estep, who burst 
through the middle of the line and ran 
67 yards to pay dirt. Perico's kick 
was good. 

The second qarter saw Coffeyville 
take to the air in a desperate attempt 
to tie the score. The alert Tiger team 
stopped every Raven threat. Half 
time score read Ark Citv 7, Coffeyville 

The third quarter saw the Ravens 
come to life. On five plays Coffey- 
ville moved from midfield all the way, 
with McCue cracking over. The kick 
was blocked by Elmo Johnson. 

The last quarter gave the Tigers 
the ball, but the stiff C'ville defense 
tightened. Perieo kicked out of bounds 
on the Coffeyville 21. In eight plays 
C'ville was on the Tieor 9. Mitchell 
r->ado two timely taeMos to set the 
Ravens back to 11. A flat pass attempt 
by the Red Ravens backfired as 
Choate intercepted on his own 5-yard 
line ami returned all the way, 95 
vards, for the Tigers' second touch- 
down. Perico's kick was blocked. 

The Ravens took to the air in the 
remaining minutes of the game in a 
dosperpt" but vain attempt to tie the 
scorp. The Tiger defense gave no to the air onslaught.

Grizzlie Power 
Stops Tiger 
Attack, 3 1 -1 4 

The Juco Tigers suffered their first 
conference loss to the ElDorado Griz- 
zles, 31 to 14, at Curry Field, October 
8. The second half spelled downfall 
for the Tigers, as El Dorado scored 
three times. 

In the first quarter Ark City was 
quick to cash in on a Grizzlie fumble, 
with Choate taking a pitchout all the 
way into the end zone. Joy was short- 
lived for the Tigers, as the play was 
called back on a clipping penalty. The 
rest of the quarter was defensive 
grind with neither team being able 
to score. 

Lead at Half 

The Tigers' first score came at the 
start of the second quarter on a pass 
from Richey to Perico. The conver- 
sion by Perico was good. The Grizzlies 
struck right back with a TD of their 
own, with Hays carrying around end 
for the 6-pointer. The try for point 
was no good. El Dorado then re- 
covered an Ai'kat fumble on the 6- 
yard line but was unable to move, 
then an attempted field goal was good. 
Still in the first half the Grizzlies 
caught Choate in the end zone for 
a safety. In the remaining minutes 
of the half the Arkats scored afain 
with Chapman carrying over from 
the 6 Perico's kick was again good. 
The Tigers lead at half time 14-11. 
El Dorado Bounces Back 

In the third quarter the only score 
was mnde by the Grizzlies on a pass 
from Orndorff to Orth. The conversion 
was good. 

El Dorado scored twice in the 
fourth quarter, the first coming on 
a drive by Stout who crashed over 
from the 2-yard marker. The kick 
was blocked. The second score came 
on a fiat pass to May, who went 60 
yards to pay dirt. 

Tigers Tangle 
ith Conqs and

Two ancient juco conference feuds 
are due for renewal with Dodge City 
and Parsons next two on the schedule. 
The Orange and Black need these im- 
portant wins to remain in the confer- 
ence running. At present the Arks 
are tied with Coffeyville for the third 
place birth. If the Tigers win the re- 
maining games on the schedule they 
are certain for at least a tie for first 
in the Juco conference race. 

The Tigers take on the Dodge City 
Conquistadores this Friday night at 
Curry Field. Thus far Dodge City has 
two conference wins against a like 
number of losses. Last week Dodge 
dropped to Hutchinson 34 to 25. 

Next week-end the Tigers will trav- 
el to Parsons for another all-impor- 
tant tilt. Parsons is presently looking 
for their first conference win. They

A United States Marine Corps 
Officers Procurement Team made 
fc^eir first of two visits to Arkansas

purpose of their annual visit was to 
enlist eligible juco students as Marine 
Corps Reserve Officer Canidates. 

Daphne Dillard, business manager, 
ard A. E. Maag, sponsor for the 
annual announced Oct. 11 that 200 
year books had been sold during the 
recent campaign. They said however 
that all those who had not bought 
an annual may still do so by seeing 
Mr. Maag. 

Maag said that the campaign went 
over "very well" but the more annuals 
sold the bigger it will be. 

The Annual Campaign party will 
be sometime after Arkalalah, staff 
members revealed Wednesday. 

An after-game social was held in 
the auditorium of the junior college 
afer the El Dorado game Friday 
night. Large signs advertising the 
social were made in the clubroom the 
night before by a number of Juco stu- 
dents. Dancing and cards were the 
main forms of entertainment in which 
many students participated. Morris 
Jarvis, chairman of the social com- 
mittee, said Friday that there will be 
a social after each home football 
game, and the clubroom will be open 
for most of them.

Name For 

The annual staff revealed Monday 
the new name for the junior college 
yearbook which, from now on will be 
called the "Tiger". A contest for the 
new name was endorsed by the staff 
members, who deemed the old one un- 
suitable. The name was chosen after 
several students had given the same 
suggestion for the title. 

A majority of the freshman pic- 
tures had been taken by Thursday, 
Oct. 28, and is hoped by A. E. Maag, 
annual sponsor, that the remaining 
pictures can be taken as soon as pos- 

Editor, Dick Rickel today said that 
this year's "Tiger" will be "bigger

"Never under-estimate the power of 
a woman" are the words of advice 
from Harold Spahr, after six Juco 
women by concentrating deeply and 
using only two fingers each, lifted 
him to shoulder height with no effort 
at all. This feat was accomplished by 
Janie Gates, Pat Morton, Myra Mor- 
row, Kitten Louderback, Jorene Hock- 
enbury, and Ailene McKee in Mr. 
Maag's speech class. 

"It's a small world" — if you 
don't believe that statement, talk 
to Wilma Reece. Last week in cur- 
rent history, Wilma's assignment 
was to give a report on Maria 
Tallchief, one of the most promi- 
nent ballerinas of today. After 
giving her report, Wilma dis- 
closed Maria was her cousin! And 
it hadn't been planned that way. 

During the Coffeyville game Berklie 
Perico forsaw an attempt by Coft'ey- 
ville's quarterback to use one of 
Richey's "fake plays," so he charged 
through the line and tackled him near 
the Ark City sideline for a 10 yd. loss. 
After Perico got up and was brushing 
himself off he turned to Coach Steig- 
leder who was standing nearby and 
said, "Did you see that guy try to hide 
that ball like a sack of candy?" 

Juco Students 
Revive 1919 
Mode! T Ford 

Bill "Shakie" Elrod really lives up 
to his nickname when he drives his 
rebuilt Model T, which is the un- 
official "Juco Sports Car." "Shake" 
and seven other Juco boys overhauled 
a 1919 Model T roadster, a job which 
took them approximately 400 hours 
to complete. 

When the boys first saw the car it 
looked like it would never run again. 
But they went to work cleaning, and 
repairing it, and replacing worn parts 
until now it runs, they say, with all 
the precision of a new car. It was 
then painted orange and black, the 
school colors and was named the 
"Juco Sports Car." 

The car was first seen in the pep 
parade before the Cameron game, 
being pulled by the fire truck due to 
"complications" which did not permit 
it to run. However, during the half 
time of the El Dorado-Ark City game 
the "T" was driven around the field 
with a dummy representing El Dor- 
ado hung on a gallows on the rear 
platform with an appropriate sign, 
"Hang One on the Grizzlies." 

Elrod and Bob Edwards, Ivan John- 
son, Cubby Nichols, Tom Edwards, 
Morris Jarvis, Bruce Zimmerman, 
Jack Hale, and Gilbert Guebelle plan 
to rework a 1918 Dodge which will 
be the second "Sports Car". 

Bill has been offered a membership 
to the Wichita antique Automobile 
Club for the reworking of the "T". 
He said that many of the Wichita 
Club's cars were on exhibit during 
Arkalalah to show the many hours 
of labor that go into them in order to 
put them on running condition. Bill 
stated that he would probably join

Juco Students 
Welcomed At 
Teen Town 

Students of Arkansas City Junior 
College are invited to make use of the 
facilities at Teen Town, Irvin Wahlen- 
meier, Mayor of Teen Town, pointed 
out this week. There one will find 
dancing and all types of games for 
everyone's pleasure and entertain- 
ment. The sole purpose of Teen Town 
is to provide constructive receation 
for both high school and college stu- 

The ony requirments are that the 
supervision committee asks of its 
members is that they obey a few 
simple rules. Some of these rules are 
the no drinking rule, which permits 
no alcoholic beverages in the building 
or on the premises, and that no person 
under the influence of alcohol be ad- 
mitted at any time; that its members 
conduct themselves in a gentelmanly 
or lady-like manner, which means no 
gambling or fighting or causing any 
extreme disturbances. The laws of 
this organization are for everyone's 
benefit, if they are not enforced this 
club can't continue to operate, says 
Neale Nichols, chairman of the super- 
vision committee. 

Morris Jarvis, Student Council soc- 
ial committee chairman, has stated 
that, as much as is practicable, future 
junior college activities will be slated 
so they will not interfere with Teen 
Town club plans.

Tigers Crush 
Dodge City 
Conqs, 52-19 

The Ark City Tigers ripped past the 
Dodge City Conquistadores at Curry 
Field on Oct. 21, in their third 
loop victory, by the score of 52 to 19. 

In the first quarter four first downs 
and a 40-yard run by Jerry Smith sot 
down the first Ark City touchdown 
with only four minutes gone. Jerry's 
run was beautifully played when 
Richey faked to the center of the 
line then calmly walked back handing 
the ball to Jerry coming wide around 
his own right end. The kick was not 
good and the score was 6 to 0. 

Dodge started a drive which was 
foiled by the Ark City defense, and 
the Conqs were forced to punt. The 
ball went out of bounds on the A. C. 
38-yard line. Only 9 plays were needed 
by the Tigers to put the ball in the 
end zone again. Eight running plays 
and a pass from Richey to Perico were 
all that were needed. On the pass 
play Richey faked every man on the 
Dodge team into a pile in the center 
of the field, and completed his flip 
to Perico with little effort to bring 
the score to 12 to 0. Again the kick 
was not good. 

Watson, Johnson Combine Efforts 

A. C. kicked off to the Conqs, who 
were forced to punt after only four 
plays. The kick was blocked by Dick 
^Watson, and Elmo Johnson picked 
up the ball and ran to the end zone. 
The conversion was also good, and 
the score read A. C. 19, D. C. 0. 

In the second quarter Dodge's two 
first downs and a 29-yard run by 
Gigax counted for their first touch- 
down. The point try went wide. The 
score 19 to 6. 

After Richey returned the D. C. 
kick off, a run by Smith of 43 yards 
and a 25-yard scamper by Nate San- 
ders completed another T.D. for Ark 
City. The extra point try was blocked 
and the Tigers were in front 25 to 6. 
Conqs Come Rack 

Again the Conqs couldn't move and 
kicked, with Choate taking the ball 
on his 12 and running down the 
sidelines to the Dodge 25-yard line. 
Two carries by Estep and a pass 
from Richey to Smith racked up the 
fifth A. C. score. A run by Richey for 
the point failed and the score stood 
31 to 6 at half time. 

The third quarter saw the inspired 
Dodge team work hard on 12 rushing 
plays, with Deis carrying the ball 
over for their second counter. A kick

Arks Musi: Win Two 
To Share Juco Crown 

The Tigers, riding along in the top 
spot with Coffeyville, must win the 
last two encounters with Independence 
and Hutchinson to assure them of a 
part of the Jayhawk Juco crown. The 
Bengals are in the more favorable 
position as the Coffeyville crew must 
face the resurging Bronc Busters of 
Garden City this week. 

The local footballers host the Inde- 
pendence Pirates this Wednesday 
night at Curry Field, and then make 
the jaunt to Hutchinson for the final 
entanglement of the season next week. 

The Pirates, another resurging club, 
show a 1 - 4 conference mark with an 
offensive average of 13.5 points per 
game and a defensive average of 14. 
Last week's loss to Coffeyville by the 
margin of 7 to 6 is indicative of the 
fact that the freedom town boys won't 
be a "weak sister" at Curry Field 
Wednsday night. The Arkats will be 
seeking revenge for last year's 7 to 6 
squeeker and the six previous losses 
over a span of seven years to the Pi- 

by Lenz was blocked and the score 
board showed 31 to 12. Ten plays 
after the Conqs took over the ball 
on the Bengals' 33 they again hit the 
end zone, with Miller going over 
standing up. A good conversion 
changed the score to 31 to 19. 
Choate Rambles, Watson Grabs 

Early in the fourth quarter Mack 
Choate took the ball on his 40 and ran 
untouched to paydirt for another 
Tigers T.D. Perico's kick being good 
made the score 38 to 19. 

A recovered fumble by Wahlen- 
meier on the Dodge City 30 set up the 
Arks' seventh counter. After a short 
pass and two rushing plays Smith 
took the ball across. Perico's kick was 
again good. Another Dodge fumble 
recovered by Dick Watson set the 
Cats up again. Chapman passed to 
Koehler for 25 yards and to Tipton in 
the end zone for the final counter. 
The Watson kick was good and the 
final score of a well-played ball game 

r hi 


The Bengals gained a tie for the 
conference lead as they downed the 
Parsons Cards 33 to 6, at Parsons 
Thursday night. The Tigers struck 
hard and fast scoring four times in 
the first half, for their fifth victory 
of the season. 

On the opening play of the game the 
Cards fumbled on their own 22 and 
the alert Tigers recovered. Five plays 
later the Bengals reached pay dirt 
with Mack Choate plunging over from 
the 2. Perico's kick was no good. With 
only 5:15 remaining the Tigers added 
their second score on a 54-yard drive 
with Jerry Smith carrying over from 
the 12. Perico's kick was again wide. 

The second period saw the Tigers 
score twice with Venable lugging the 
pigskin over from 1 yard out. Perico's 
kick rang true. The second score came 
after a 43-yard pass play from Richey 
to Perico. Richey added the 6 pointer 
from the 11. Perico's boot was again 

The third and final quarters saw 
matched touchdowns with both teams 
scoring once each. The Tigers were 
first. With minutes remaining in the 
third quarter Jim Estep cracked into 
the end zone. Perico's extra point was 
good. Parsons' lone score came late 
in the fourth quarter on a pass play 
from Hoisington to Daniels. The kick 
was blocked by Jeff Walker. 

It was the third straight win for 
the Tigers and placed them atop the 
list with Coffeyville for the lead in 
the Jayhawk Juco Conference.

Bill Walker 
Designs Unusual 
Annual Cover 

A unique cover for this year's 
annual designed by Bill Walker has 
been unanimously approved by the 
annual staff, editor Dick Rickel has 

The cover is constructed so that the 
shadow from the word Tiger will 
gather to a point on a map of Kansas 
where Ark City is located. The colors 
orange, black, gray, and white will 
be incorporated into the design. 

"It is attractive because of its sim- 
plicity" is the opinion of the editor, 
and A. E. Maag, sponsor, concurrs. 
Much credit should be given to Walker 
for his "completely different" idea for 
the cover which is exactly what the 
staff wanted, Rickel said. 


In keeping with the Thanksgiving 
theme the members of the Elementary 
Design Class, under the direction of 
Mrs. Martha Hansen, will arrange 
and decorate the new show case in 
the front hall.

iger Wave 
Sinks Pirate 

The Bengal Tigers added victory 
number six to their belts as they 
downed the Independence Pirates 35-7 
at Curry Field, November 3. The 
Tigers scored seven times to crush 
the hard fighting Pirates 35-7. 

The Arks' initial score came in the 
first quarter as Mac Choate went 40- 
yards for the marker. Perico made the 
"first of five perfect conversions. The 
Pirates returned the TD as they re- 
covered an Arkat fumble and went the 
distance in six plays, with Bruner 
carrying over from the 2. Wagner's 
Loot was good. 

Choate Scores Again 

Mac Choate scored his second touch- 
down in the second period to put the 
Tigers back in front. The TD came 
on a run from 10-yards out. Later in 
the second quarter a pass play from 
Richey to Ferico netted 24-yards and 
another Tiger tally. 

The third quarter saw the Bengals 
score TD's number four and five, as 
Jim Estep lugged the pigskin over 
from the 8. Perico completed his 
fourth conversion. After an inter- 
cepted Pirate pass Nate Sanders 
added the final touchdown carrying 
over from the 10. 

The final period held both teams in 
a deadlock, the Pirates trying des- 
perately to score again. Two drives 
fell short on the 10 and on the 20. 


Tigers Take 
Second Place In

The Arkats closed out their 1954 
football season last week end with a 
13-13 deadlock with the Hutchinson 
Blue Dragons. The tie edged the 
Tigers into second place in the Jay- 
hawk Juco Conference. This year's 
conference race saw four teams hold 
the top billing, Hutchinson, Coffey- 
ville, El Dorado, and Arkansas City. 
There is one more conference game 
remaining to be played with the 
Pirates from Independence going 
against the up and coming Garden 
( ity eleven. The result of this game

Had the first extra point try been 
good at Hutch last Friday night, Ark 
City would be co-champions of the 
Kansas Juco Conference sharing the 
crown with the Coffcyville Ravens 
who were victorious over the Dodge 
City Conquistadores. 

In the opening minutes of play 
Hutchinson's Curt Bennett went over 
for the first touchdown. The kick be- 
ing no good made the score 6-0. Ark 
City retaliated as Nate Sanders made 
the Arks' first T. D. after three first 
downs. Perico's attempt for the point 
was not good and the score was tied 
6-6. The quarter ended with neither 
team threatening to score again. 

In the second and third quarters de- 
fensi e action by both teams was ex- 
cellent as not a sinzle touchdown was 
made during this time. Both teams 
licked often as ground could not be 
gained, and a fumble by Hutch and 
two by Ark City did not help the sit- 

Early in the fourth Stoecklein took 
the ball around his own right end and 
down the sideline for the second 
Hutch T. D. The kick by Vogal was 
good and Hutch lead, 13-6 

Hutch's lead was not for long as 
Jerry Smith took a hand-off from 
Richey and ran 31 yards to the end 
zone to bring the score to 13-12. Peri- 
co's kick was good this time and again 
the score was tied 13-13. 

Late in the quarter Hutchinson in- 
tercepted a pass attempted by Richey 
which shattered all Tiger hopes of 
winning, as the final gun sounded 
seconds later.

The 1954-55 Tiger hoopsters began 
their pre-season drills last Monday 
night. There had been some informal 
sessions three times a week during 
the latter part of the football season 
for the non-football boys. 

The Tigers, under Coach Dan Kah- 
ler. have amassed a two-season won 
and lost record of 55 wins and 10 
losses. Also they are the defending 
champions for the past two years in 
the state, conference, and regional 
and have gone to the nationals at 
Hutchinson where they placed second 
and seventh among the top juco teams 
of the country. 

With only three returning letter- 
men Coach Kahler will have a fairly 
new aggregation. Skip Cleaver, Dick 
Leu, and Tony Rendulich are the let- 
ter winners, and Bill Elrod, Howard 
Gray, Merlin Burnett, and Joe Pro- 
chaska are the returning squad mem- 
bers. Five sophomore transfers are 
Milo Oyler, Andy Matson, Jim Sul- 
livan, Mac Choate, and Don Cummins, 
and a promising freshmen group round 
out the team. 

Coach Kahler says this year's unit 
will be as strong offensively as the 
last year Tigers, but they will not 
have the speed or defensive power. 
However, he believes the boys will 
come around defensively because their 
mental capacity ranks with the last 
year Tigers.

Before the wedding ceremony, Tony

louse Building Project 

The main project of this year's car- 
pentry class will be the construction 
of a five-room frame house, C. L. Hol- 
man, vocational education director, 
has announced. 

This is the second consecutive year 
the vocational department has under- 
taken to build a project of this type. 
Last year the carpentry department 

Two student c^rpentrs put the final 
touches on last year's four-room 
house. Kenneth Runale, left, and Don 
Branch, hang windows. 

built a four-room house which was 
later auctioned off at a public sale 
for $4,000. The year before last a 
garage was the major accomplish- 

Site for the 1955 project is the 
north-west corner of Fourth and 
Washington, the use of which was 
donated by Earl Stanley, a retired 
Arkansas City businessman. The 
house this year will feature redwood 

In past years the practice has been 
that after the completion of the build- 
ing it is auctioned off at a public sale. 
It is for this reason that a basement 
will not be constructed. The project 
was started the first week in Novem- 
ber and is due for completion the la- 
ter part of May. 

During the period from the first of 
school to the time that preparations 
for the construction of the new house 
were completed the carpentry class 
Ins added many things to the college. 
They built a new storeroom in the 
basement of Juco for the use of the 
Student Council and other student or- 
ganizations. They also built an ink 
cabinet for the high school and junior 
college print shop. 

The class is under the direction of 

L. A. Chaplin, long-time industrial 

rrts instructor ,and an experienced 

carpenter. Arkansas City carpenters 

have approved the carpentry project 

by vote of the local carpenters union. 
Members of this years class are 
Roger Bowser, Don Branch, Kenneth 
Czaplinski, Jim Estep, Kenneth Run- 
die, and Warren Wing.

their guests ascended to the dance 
floor, where the remaining hours were 
spent dancing to a juke box.

Tiger Cagers 
Open Season on 
3 - Game Tour 

The Tiger hoopsters embarked on a 
three-day trip Wednesday morning 
to open the 1954-55 season, with three 
eames on successive nights. The itin- 
erary covers Oklahoma and Texas 
with games at Warner and Lawton, 
Oklahoma, against Connors and Cam- 
eron junior colleges, and one game at 
Jacksonville, Texas, with Lon Morris 

The Bengals will have their hands 
full if last year's record is any indi- 
cation of the present season's poten- 
tiality. Two of these opponents, Con- 
nors and Lon Morris, went to the na- 
tionals last year, and Cameron lost 
out to Connors by one point for the 
trip to Hutchinson. Lon Morris, with 
four of the starters back this year, 
has already won two games impres- 
sively this season, as one of the scores 
was 116 to 76, indicates. Cameron 
shows power with the addition of a 
6 foot 8 inch boy and an all-State 
guard from Texas. 

Thirteen Tigers made the trip to 
pound the maple boards at Warner, 
Okla., tonight, Jacksonville, Texas, 
Thursday, and Lawton, Okla., Friday 
evening. Skip Clever, Jan Chapman. 
Shaky Elrod, Bill Embry, Ray Hernan- 
dez, Dick Leu, Andy Matson, Mylo 
Oyler, Berklie Perico, Charles Porter, 
Tony Rendulich, Delwin Smith, and 
Jerry Smith make up the traveling 
squad for this sojourn. 

Coach Dan Kahler said that he 
scheduled this trip for the experience 
that it would give the boys on the 
basketball court and the educational 
values derived from traveling. He also 
stated that the boys will do well and 
are naturally going down there to win, 
and also that regardless of the out- 
come, these games will do more good 
than any others of the season. 

Spanish Club Plans 

A short business meeting of El Cir- 
culo Espanol was held November 16, 
in the junior college clubroom with 
Joyce Clark, president, presiding. 
Grace Ramirez, secretary, presented 
the minutes in Spanish which were 
a"nroved as read. 

The program committee composed 
of Janice Waggoner, Wilma Reece, 
and Evelyn Henderson plan to meet 
thi« week for the purnose of planning 
entertainment for future programs 
The next meeting will be held Dec 
ember 7. 

— *— 

' With the basketball season rolling 
into high gear this week-end, here is 
the way the other teams in the 
Kansas Juco Conference may shape 

Pratt Juco: "We should have a better 
team this year than last," says Coach 
Fred Lighter. This year Pratt will 
bave three of last year's strartmg 
five back, who are ready for all m- 
counters with high hopes of victory. 
El Dorado Juco: The El Dorado Griz- 
zlier have a new cage coach this sea- 
son Bryce Stallard, and he has been 
working very hard to get his crew in 
shape for a tough season. Stallard is 
working with a handicap this year due 
to the fact that he has only one re- 
turning letterman, but it's usually 
the team that's down that wins a lot 
of ball games. 

Independence Juco: Six returning let- 
termen should help the Pirates have a 
better than average season this year. 
The only thing that will hurt the 
Pirates will be "the loss of Troy John, 
a letterman of two seasons ago, 
who will not be eligible until the 
second semester. 

Dodge City Juco: The Conqs are also 
looking for a good season this year, 
with five returning lettermen and 
Coach Bill Cummins, an Ark City 
graduate, who is in his third season 
with Dodge. 

Garden Ciiy Juco: Last year the Gar- 
den City Broncs lacked height, 
but this year they hope to have con- 
siderably' more, plus the five return- 
ing lettermen and a good freshman 

Coffeyville Juco: The Javatowners will 
strongly contest the Independence 
Pirates for control of the Eastern 
Division. The Red Ravens have five 
returning lettermen, who were last 
year's Eastern Division Champs. 

These are but a few of the Tigers' 
worthy foes who will make 1954-55 
a bang-up season in Kansas junior 
college cage history. 


When Terry Hodkin recalls memor- 
ies concerning the men in her lite, 
one of the most outstanding will cer- 
tainly involve Lyle Eaton. It seems 
"speedster" Eaton swerved around a 
corner causing Terry to fall out the 
door and sprain her ankle. Following 
a trip to Memorial Hospital where 
x-rays wore takn, Terry tediously 
limped back to class Tuesday.

Student Prexie 
Urges Voter 

With the annual selection of a new 
Student Council President scheduled 
for early February 1 , and campaign 
maneuvers already under way, Joe 
Herr, 1954 president, issued the fol- 
lowing statement today: 

"In accordance with the Constitu- 
tion of the Arkansas City Junior Col- 
lege Student Government the election 
of the President of the Student Coun- 
cil shall conform to the following reg- 

"All candidates shall file a declar- 
ation of intent in the form provided 
by the Student Council, such declar- 
ation to be filed with the Secretary of 
the Council by the end of the school 
day following January 10 of each 

"The candidate must be a regularly 
enrolled student, with 14 semester 
hours credit earned during the immed- 
iatelv prior semester to any semester 
in which he serves as president, and 
further, must have attained and main- 
tained during his service marks certi- 
fied as average by the Dean of the 
Junior College. 

"At this time I would like to make 
a couple of suggestions to the cand- 
idates and voter. 

"To the candidates first: Unless you 
have the time, effort and desire for 
this post, you would be doing the 
student body an injustice to run for 
office. You must be prepared to make 
daily efforts on behalf of your office. 

"To the voter: I think th^ primary 
prequisite of a candidate is respon- 
sibility, and the ability to command 
respect from his associates. The Pres- 
ident of ACJC has considerable 
authority granted him bv the Const- 
itution. I hope you will give some 
s-rious thought to the above and elect 
a candidate who can qualify. The col- 
lege has grown and contnues to grow. 
The next President can help the 
growth or retard the growth. You the 
voter must decide which. 

TAC Directs Christmas 
Decorations in Halls 

Attracting the attention of many 
passers-by is the colorful Christmas 
scene which was painted on the front 
entrance of the junior college by Bill 
Walker. Above the south entrance an 
old fashioned lamp post amid snow 
banks was also painted by Walker. 
Bruce Bittle decorated the long east 
window by painting a huge red bow 
and pine cones. 

On each classroom door a design in 
keeping with the Christmas theme 
were painted under the direction of 
Dorothy McFarland with the assis- 
tance of TAC members and helpful 
men students. A Christmas tree in the 
foyer was decorated by TAC members 
and Mrs. Helen Randle, decorated two 
trees in the dean's office.

The dinner meeting, tried for the 
first time last year, proved so suc- 
cessful that the assembly committee 
suggested it be repeated. A sophomore 
groun who attended the 1953 affair, 
voted overwhelming in favor of the 
plan at a meeting last week. 
- Ob'ect of the dinner, according to

torium. Morris Jarvis, social chairman, 
Mike Smith, and Andy Matson formed

Mama Smoochin' Santa Claus," and 
"All I Want For Christmas Is My Two

After hearing that Daphne Dillard 

spent four hours in the biology lab 

last Thursday, we've come to the 

conclusion that she either loves clams 

or was looking for a pearl. All kidding 

aside, there are not too many of us 

who would stick with an assignment 

that long in order to finish it, so: 

Keep up the good work, Daff, 

When you get A's, 

And we get F's, 

You'll have a great big laff. 

Congratulations and better luck 
next time to the Tigers, who although 
chalked up no wins, represented ACJC 
well on their little jaunt to the South- 
land. According to 12 basketball 
lovers who traveled to Lawton to 
support the Tigers, it was a bang-up 
ball game. 

The staff has a serious problem in 
journalism class. Tbo editor, Wes Jor- 
dan, is in a bad way — he needs a 
girl. Not just any girl, mind you, but 
a sweet, good-looking, agreeable lass. 
Anyone who meets these requirements 
and wants to know more about the 
editor, may come to room 109 and his 
staff can tell plenty.

Have you ever wondered who that 
5 feet 11% inches of dark-brown 
haired, brown-eyed, 147-pound man is 
who fills the pop machines in the club 
rooms ? 

This juco member was born Oct- 
ober 12, 1935 in the Memorial hospital 
at Arkansas City, but spent all his 
life in Newkirk, Oklahoma. 

He attended his first eight years 
of school at OK rural school near 
Newkirk, and the next fonr at New- 
kirk Hiu'h. During high school he was 
a member of the speech class and 
played basketball. He graduated in 
May of 1958. This young man entered 
the Arkansas City Junior College in 
the fall of 1953. He is a sophomore 
this year. 

He has many likes and among them 
ace the color blue, football on the 
sports schedule, "I Need You Now" 
on the music platter, and chemistry 
lab as his favorite class. 

Have you guessed who this fine 
young man is? It is Lynn Scott. 

Just imagine a 5 foot, 4% inch 
"chick" with green eyes and red hair 
"cooling it" down the hallways with 
a smiling, "Hiya," to all, and Glenna 
Sue Huffman is envisaged. Sue, as 
she is known to jucoites, is the more 
preferred of the two names. 

Sue came into this world on Jan- 
uary 13, 1936, at Guthrie, Okla., but 
has lived in Ark City most of her 
life. She graduated from the local high 
school last spring and entered juco

Don Bowman, a 1953 juco grad at

what Sue would rather do than any-

Dean Requests 
For 2nd Term 

All college students have been asked 
by Dean K. R. Galle to complete pre- 
enrollment proceedure prior to the 
Christmas holiday. Sophomores who 
expect to be candidates for graduation 
at the end of the spring semester are 
particularly urged to check with Dean 
Galle on second semester courses 
necessary to complete their individual 

Pre-enrollment choices are express- 
ed preferences, and not final enroll- 
ments. They are used as material upon 
which to base selection of course 
offerings and for schedule making, the 
administrator pointed out. 

Final enrollment, the selection of 
courses for the individual student, 
will begin shortly after school re- 
sumes following the vacation period, 
Dean Galle announced Mondey. Until 
he is informed of individual prefer- 
ences, he is handicapped on selecting 
courses to meet the needs of the stu- 
dent body and in sceduling classes 
to avoid conflicts for the individual, 
and therefore he urged students to 
make a special effort to pre-enroll or 
revise earlier pre-enrollment selec-

Five Juco Musicians TAC Organized 

Form Happy 

From Old Pep Club 

Little German Band Nine Years Ago 

Five members of the Junior College 
band have formed a slightly hilarious 
German Band which has been enter- 
taining people at many civic clubs and 
various rural schools during the past 
few weeks. 

Members of the band are; Jim Sher- 
bon, who acts as the spokesman for 
the group and plays the bass horn; 
David Circle, on the trumpet; Bob 
Greenwood and Dwight Ayling on 
clarinets; and Allison Whitaker, who 
plays the trombone and hits the little 
jug marked "xxx" on the side, while 
the other members try to restrain him. 

Their program is composed of a 
medley of popular songs and marches 
of "questionable German descent." 

The boys claim that no two pre- 
sentations are exactly the same. After 
the horseplay is quieted down they 
really present a wonderful program of 
music, their fans say. In some future 
assembly program it is honed that 
these boys will be seen by the student

Tigers, Alumni Meet 
For 5th Tilt; Four 
Home Games Loom 

The Tigers will play the fifth an- 
nual alumni game in the Aud-Gym 
here December 27. The last two years 
the Tigers have been victorious but 
this year it will be one of the toughest 
games yet. In 1952 the Tigers gained 
a 57-54 win in the final seconds and 
in 1953 they scooted by on a single 
point, 55-54. 

Four regular season home games 
in a row will be played by the Tigers 
in addition to the Alumni contest. Two 
of these appear to be among the 
tougher assignments of the Bengal 

Lon Morris players, who gave the 
Tigers their second defeat of the re- 
cent road trip, will appear here to- 
night to test the Arks in their home 
den, and Wichita U. freshmen, who 
appear to be the strongest Shocker 
underclassmen in years, are expected 
to deal the Tigers plenty of misery 
Saturday night. 

First conference game of the year 
will bring the Hutchinson Dragons 
to the Tiger court December 22, and 
the chips will be down. The Arks then 
return temporarily to non-conference 
competition to entertain the Connors 
Aggies in a return engagement, Jan- 
uary 6. 

These Alumni-Tiger games are 
sponsored by the local Quarterback 
Club and the Alumni coach is Orlan 
Coffman, who has always turned out 
a fine alumni team. Some of the for- 
mer Juco greats who will probably 
play on the Alumni team this year 
are Lafayette Norwood, J. C. Louder- 
back, Seymour Seitchick, Jim Reed, 
Reece Bohannon, Linwood Burns, Ray 
Potter, Jerry David, Jackie King, and 
Bill Clay. 

There will be a preliminary game 
with the Tiger B's facing the Alumni 

Cameron Breaks Chain 
But Bengals Wreck Ravens 

The Arkansas City Juco Tigers 
broke even in a pair of home encount- 
ers by losing to Cameron, 59-54, and 
downing Coffeyville, 98-58. 

The Cameron Aggies gained their 
second straight win over the Tigers 
in five days, and gave the Tigers 
there first home court loss in 30 
games. The Aggies looked like a much- 
improved ball club after the first 
meeting with the Tigers down at Law- 
ton, where they won the game on free 
throws, 77-73. 

After a five-day rest the Bengals 
met the Coffeyville Red Ravens in the 
Aud-Gym, on December 13. The Tigers 
completely out-classed the Javetown- 
ers by romping on them 98-58. Ark 
City Juco fans saw a scoring rampage 
by the Tigers as Tony Rendulich hit 
for 27 points and five other Tigers 
banged in ten or n.ore points, led 
Embry and Cleaver, .vho both had 12 
points, Shanks and Porter with 11 
each, and Matson with 10. Fifteen 
Tigers saw action. 

Tigers Take Two Games 
From Parsons Cardinals 

The Tigers won their first game of 
the 1954-55 season by downing the 
Parson Cards, 65-52, at Parsons, Dec- 
ember 7.

The Cameron Aggies made it three 
straight against the Tigers as they 
set them back in a hard fought con- 
test at Lawton, Okla. The Tigers were

No Candidates 
For SC Prexie;

Our Miss Co-Ed for this issue is 
not a "natural born Kansan." She is 
a native of Oklahoma, having been 
born on Washington's birthday in 
1935, in Lawton. 

Babs was a graduate of Lawton 
High School in 1953. She moved to 
Arkansas City in August of 1954 in 
time to enroll as a member of the 
freshman class. 

If you are walking down the hall, 
and you hear a vigorous "Hey Guy!" 
turn around and you will see this 5 
foot 3 inch, fair complected, blue eyed 
brunett, Barbara Below, who is our 
Miss Co-Ed. 

Some of Barbara's likes are the 
music of Ralph Flannigan and"That's 
All I Want From You," by J. P. Mor- 
gan, are tops on the vocal and platter 
parade. Among her other likes are 
the color blue and dancing. The only 
dislike we know about is that she

"A mile tall and two city blocks

Mr. Maag used to describe our Mr.

a 6 foot, 3 inch lad from Atlanta. 
Bob played basketball in high school, 
ar.d says it is his favorite sport. He 
lists his hobbies as eating and sleep- 
ing, and his pet peeves as over-anx- 
ious te.'«';hers, although Mr. Maag 
must not be one, because he is Bob's 
favorite instructor. 

Bob says Juco, all in all, is "O.K." 
and biology lab is "Double O.K." The 
color blue, and les Paul and Mary

Goest" completes the top of the list

Second Annua 
Xmas Dinner 
Goes Over Big 

The second annual college Christmas 
luncheon was characterized as a "real 
success", by student leaders, December 
22, when students crowded into the 
juco auditorium, with approximately 
170 attending. 

The foods class, supervised by Mrs. 
Martha A. Hansen, prepared and 
served a delicious meal consisting of 
jon mazetti, salad, pickles, olives, 
french bread and butter, milk, coffee, 
cookies, and ice cream. 

Following the meal A.E. Maag, 
introduced by Jerry Waltrip as master 
of ceremonies, and his singing faculty, 
"murdered" the ever-popular Christ- 
mas carol, "Jingle Bells". 

"Embarrassed" Mrs. Florence Go- 
forth played on her accordian the old- 
time western tune, "0 Bury Me Not 
On The Lone Prarie." It was the only 
one she knew. 

Bill Walker and his talking harmon- 
ica played the tunes "Joy to the 
World" and "Blues Stay Away From 

Delbert Schmidt, playing the bass 
viol, Evelyn Henderson, the guitar, 
and Don Truby, the steel guitar, 
played the "Steel Guitar Rag." Evelyn,

and "Bli iQ Christmas." 

Jerry Waltrip, "the most timid boy

*7a Ptelenl StuAei 

Dear Editor: 

Here we go again, another New 
Year and the inevitable resolutions 
which so capriciously follow the holi- 

As you walk through the Juco halls 
you can hear the wild chant of Mr. 
Ed and Miss Co-Ed: "I will not fall 
asleep in Mr. Johnson's classes; I will 
not throw airplanes at Mr. Maag; and 
above all I will refrain from throwing 
pop bottles and psychology books at 
the visiting basketball players and 

Walking through the halls in my, 
new capacity as an old grad, last 
week I noticed several changes in the 
school. A new trophy case, additions 
in the club room, a larger student 
body. It's good. 

A feeling of satisfaction came over 
me as I thought of the graduating 
class of '54 and how hard the students 
of that class worked to make the 
school a better place matriculate than 
it was when we first entered. 

This is the time of the year for 
students to put forth an extra effort 
in all tasks, so you can include some- 
thing really fine in your New Year's 
resolution; — something that you will 
always be proud of. To respect the 
f culty of your college and to work 
harder and more diligently to make

Cerma^ Club Ho'ds 
Annual Christmas Party 

The Junior College German club, 
Der Deutsch Verein, had its annual 
Christmas party at the home of 
Mrs. T. T. Boyle, Tuesday night, De- 
cember 14. 

Mavis GiHock spoke about "Weih- 
nachten in Deutschland" or "Christ- 
mas in Germany." The group parti- 
cipated in several German games 
planned by Miss Anne Hawley, lan- 
fu~sre instructor. 

Mavis was elected vice president 
during a brief business session pre- 
ceding- the meeting. 

Refreshments were served at the 
clcse of the evening. 

Twelfth Night Party 
To Be Held Jan. II 

The French Club, Le Cercle Fran- 
cais, will be host at the annual 
Twelfth Night Party at the Osage 
Hotel for the other two college lan- 
guage groups, the German and Span- 
ish Olu^s, at 6:30 p. m., January 11. 

The Twelfth Night Party is an old 
custom of the French people, who 
always celebrate the twelfth night 
after Christmas. Since the clubs are 
unable to meet on the twelfth night, 
January 6, they are meeting January 
11 instead. 

During the evening a king and 
queen are chosen to reign for the 
evening. This is done by serving a 
< aky with a bean concealed and the 
one receiving this piece will choose 
a partner as his or her king or queen. 

Christmas Ball 
Most Successful 
Yet, Grads Say 

"The most successful Alumni- 
Christmas party in years," was the 
general comment made by former stu- 
dents to faculty and present juco stu- 
dents at the annual Christmas dance 
December 22. A crowd estimated at 
350 students, alumni, and their dates 
enjoyed an evening of dancing and 

A huge paper snowman above the 
roaring fireplace, along with scenes 
of trees and snowbanks painted as 
murals and on the windows were out- 
standing, as they created a "Winter 
Wonderland". A mural depicting a 
deer amid a forest of evergreens 
served as a background for Herb Jim- 
merson's orchestra. Christmas trees 
and mistletoe were placed at strategic 

Notable along with the elaborately 
decorated ballroom, was the refresh- 
ment room, which was arranged in an 
unusually eye-catching manner. The 
punch table was silhouetted by a large 
wall mural of a wintery forest rcene. 
The candle-lighted tables also con- 
tributed by giving atmosphere to the 
holiday hop.

Tigers Sweep Five Games 
In Pre-Holiday Wins 

The Tigers made it five straight 
on their home court to add to the 
holiday joy, with a pair of tough foes 
highlighting the games of the week 

of Dec. 13. 

The Tigers won the first of three 
from Weber, Utah, in a runaway 
84-54, December 15. Charlie Porter 
was high for the Arkats, with 17 

Lon Morris, Tex. was the second 
victim of the Bengals, as the Arks out- 
scored the Texas powerhouse 93-86 in 
a thriller at the Aud-Gym, December 
16. Tony Rendulich was the big gun 
for the Cats, hitting the nets for 25 
points, while Roach had 22 and Moore 
20 for the Bearcats. 

To round out the week, the Tigers 
went against the highly praised Wich- 
ita University freshmen team and 
dumped them in a close game 80-75. 
"Andy" Matson hit nine field goals 
to lead the onslaught. 

With the hot shooting of Mylo 
Oyler and Andy Matson, the Tiger 
squad nailed their first conference 
victory in a fast moving thriller, 84-80 
over Hutchinson's Blue Dragons. 

The strong Dragon team lead most 
of the first half, but the tide changed 
when Rendulick, Matson, Porter, and 
Oyler started hitting consistently. 
Dick Leu put the game on ice in the 
last quarter by hitting two charities 
with 14 seconds left. 

Perico, Richey Make 
Ail-American Roster 

Two local Juco Tigers were named 
on the Los Angles Times All-American 
roster, Berklie Perico and Bill Richey, 
the only Kansas players named to the 
Junior College All-American team. 

Perico was placed as an end on the 
All-American second team, while Rich- 
ey was given a place on the honorable 
mention roll. 

This selection is made by coaches all 
over the nation who submit players 
from the teams they have played, but 
none from their own teams. 

It is the second time such honor 
has been bestowed on Perico, who 
made the 1953 high school All-Amer- 
ican Team, while playing with the 
Arkansas City High School Bulldogs. 

Both Perico and Richey will again 
don Tiger uniforms next season, and 
both will add to another fine Tiger 

Artie Schippers, the Hutch flash, 
grabbed the high honors by scoring 
29 points, and Larry Dick dunked in 
26 for second place. 

The Tigers handed the Alumni a 
73-68 defeat in a well-played ball 
game, Dec. 27, to bring the count to 
four to one in the five-year-old class- 
ic. Alumni won only in 1951. 

With the true shooting of Berklie 
Perico and Milo Oyler, who took the 
scoring honors with 21 and 18 points 
respectively, the Tigers led most of 
the way. Lynn Burns, former ■ Juco 
All-American dumped in 16 points 
for the Alumni. The Alumni was fa- 
vored but were no match for the fast 
playing Tigers who made their shots 

A number of former cage stars 
were seen in action again. Those play- 
ing for alumni were Linwood Burns, 
Lafayette Norwood, Jim Reed, Ray 
Potter, Allen Chaplin, Bill Clay, John- 
ny Gaddis, J. C. Louderback, Jerry 
David, Jack King, Eddie Gilmore, Bill 
Bartholomew, Gary Parker, Don Hunt, 
Larry Johnson, Kenny Gilmore, Joe 
Berry, Jerry Garris, Seymour Seit- 
chick, Bob Fry, Gary Thomas, Richard 
Getto, and Jim Miller. 

TAC Makes Plans 
For Athletic Queen 

Tentative plans are in progress, 
under the supervision of TAC, for the 
selection of an "Athletic Queen." 
Dorothy McFarland, president, with 
the aid of a committee of club mem- 
bers has charge of planning the 
election and cor; nation of the queen. 

In previous years, the proee lure 
has been for members of the bas! t- 
ball and football teams to nominate 
ten girls, sophomores and freshmen. 
The student body then votes on nom- 
inees to reveal the three top candi- 
dates, one of whom is queen. 

The crowing is scheduled to take 
place sometime in February. Former

ith Connors, 

our btate roes 

The Tigers go back into action to- 
night against the Conners, Oklahoma, 
Aggies at the Aud-Gym. Connors 
handed the Arkats their first defeat 
of the season, 49-48, on their southern 
read trip, Since the early jaunt the 
Tigers have won six straight, and hope 
to avenge the previous loss. 

On January 11, the Tigers will trav- 
el to Pratt for their second league 
game and then return home to prepare 
for the two powers of the Western 
division, Dodge City on January 14 
and Garden City, Jan. 15. 

Dcdge City has a well-balanced club 
and should prove a worthy opponent 
for the Tigers. Dodge defeated Weber 
Uta.i 8J-73, whiie the Timers took 
Weber Ly a 84-54 margin. 

Gar en Lity is considered the team 
to be-t in t-ie Western Divician. Be- 
fore Christmas the busters had a 
seven wins and no loss record, but this 
was rectified on their southern road 
trip by a pair of losses, the first to 
Lon Morris 106-78, and to Tyler, 
Texas, 115-85. Tyler has presently an 
average of 103 points per game. 

After these two encounters the Cats 
will move to Independence, a power in 
the Eastern Division, on January 18.

It's Walker vs 
Logan in 
Council Race 

Campaigns of candidates for the 
Student Council presidency broke wid$ 
open January 10 as the first signs 
were seen in college halls urging the 
election of Bill Walker. The following 
day three times the number of signs 
were put up in favor of Wes Jordan. 
When Jordan withdrew from the race 
his signs were quickly replaced by 
those painted by the campaign mana- 
gers for Phil Logan. 

Walker chose the school colors, 
orange and black, for his official ban- 
ners, while Logan chose to make his

Pepsters Present 

"Low Noon" 

To Packed House 

The super-colossal stage production, 
"Low Noon", a pep assembly, played 
to a packed house Friday morning, 
January 14, in the juco auditorium. 

William "Shakey" Elrod and Fred- 
die "Tiger Kid" Wilson starred in a 
duel in Larry Sarth's saloon while 
Mack Choate, Gordon Fry, Bill 
Richey, and Doug Fritz, involved in a 
hot card game, hardly notice the 
demise of the tough Elrod at the 
hands of the milk-drinking Tiger-Kid. 
Background music was played by Bill 
Walker. ' 

Shakey was walking the floor of 
Larry's Saloon when "all of a sudden" 
the Tiger Kid came riding in on his 
bucking (stick) bronco. As he entered 
the saloon he ordered a glass of 
"goat's, milk" and to that Shakey in- 
formed him he was to have whisky 
with him. The Tiger Kid then in- 
formed Shakey that he was not to 
push the Tiger Kid around. That's 
when the excitement started. 

Tiger Kid and Shakey went into a 
gun duel which made everyone in the 
saloon start in the battle. And, who 
do you suppose won the great gun 
fi ht? Of course, it was none other 
than the Tiger Kid, who rode away, 
proudly, on his stick, leaving Shakey 
lying dead on the bar-room floor. 

That was supposed to provide a tine 
example of what the b-.sketb-.ill team 
was going to do to Dodge City on 
Friday night and Garden City on Sat- 
urday night. 

Following the skit, the cheerleaders 
took o er t .e remaining part of the 
assembly, leading the student body in 
a series of velis.

The Eagles were beaten last week by 
the Pratt Beavers 99-77. In turn, the 
Tigers rapped the Beavers 81-69. 

After a six-day rest the Cats will 
again take to the road, moving to El 
Dorado to play the Grizzlies in a 
Western Division Conference tilt. El 
Dorado has a one win and two loss 
record in conference play, winning 
over Garden City 69-59, while the 
Tigers busted the Bronks 86-50.

Coronation of the king and queen 
was the main event of the evening. As 
is a custom of the French people on 
the Twelfth Night, a cake, containing 
a bean, is served as dessert, and the 
person finding the bean chooses his 
king or queen and the reign for the 
remainder of the evening. 

Queen Sherry, a member of the

containing the bean, and she in turn

as her king. Logan, as the host presi- 
dent, was in charge of the coronation, 
and placed silver crowns on heads of 
the royal persons. 

Following the coronation a program, 
planned by Jean Lacquement, French 
Club vice-president, was held. Donald 
Russell, high school senior, played 
"Prelude," by Bach; "The Children's 
Fountain," by Chaves; and " Ara- 
besque, "by Debussy, on the piano. 

Grace Ramirez, a Spanish student, 
sang "Por un Amor" in Spanish. Ger- 
ald Mullett, a German student, sang 
"Die Lorelei" in German. He was ac- 
companied at the piano by Gail White, 
French student. Evelyn Henderson, a 
Spanish student, accompanying her- 
self on the guitar, sang, "El Rancho 

A flute solo, "Stormy Weather," 
was played by Jane Gates, accom- 
panied by Beverly Boswell at the 
piano. Both are members of the 
French class. 

A trio composed of Dennis Rickard, 
Bill Elrod, and Phil Logan sang 
"Sweet Adeline" in French. They were 
accompanied by Jean Lacquement. 
They are all members of the French 

The table decorations, under the 
supervision of Sue Wilson, was in a 
Christmas scene, with red candles 
placed in white angel hair, studded 
with colored stars, greenery down the 
center of the tables, place cards of 
greon and red with names written in 
white, and red and green menus at 
each table setting. On the speakers' 
table was a creche scene.

Bengals Blast 
3 Foes Away 
On Home Court 

The Ark City Tigers lengthened 
their win streak to ten straight, 
with three wins over two conference 
foes and on non-conference team, 
on January 6, 14, and 15 playing Con- 
nor Aggies, Dodge City, and Garden 
City, respectively, before home fans. 
The favored Connor Aggies, of 
Warner, took a 66 to 62 defeat in a 
nonconference return bout on the 
Tiger court, January 6. 

With the able contributions of Berk- 
lie Perico and Tony Rendulick, who 
each gathered in 17 points, the Arks 
lead most of the way. The tall Connor 
team, which had twice before polished 
off the Cameron Aggies, were highly 
favored but were no match for the 
inspired A. C. Cats. 

Cameron twice took the measure 
of the Tigers and thus ruined a 30- 
game at home-court win record of the 
Kahlermen, had not been beaten since 
El Dorado did the job two years ago. 
The Connor quintet provided ample 
competition but were suprisingly sur- 
passed by the fast-playing Tiger hosts, 
who had dropped a 49 to 48 decision in 
the first-night stand of their southern 
road trip early in the season. 

The Tigers dropped the Dodee City 
Conqs, 59 to 56, in a close Western 
Division conference game, January 
14, on the home boards. 

The game proved to be a tight one 
with both teams using a strict <* • 
fense which kept the score low. Andy 
Matson led the scoring for Ark City 
with 20 well-earned points. Every man 
who played made the score column 
with the exception of Jan Chapman. 
Don Peterson, the tall Dodge ace, 
captured the high-point honors with 
22 points to his credit. 

The Tigers dropped the highly rated 
Garden City Busters 86-50 in an 
easy contest last Saturday January 15. 
The Garden team didn't pan out as 
they were expected to and the A.C. 
cats tore them up with all 15 of the 
players seeing action. Only Smith and 
Elswick of the 15 failed to score. Pea- 
ico took high with 18 points while Da- 
ter of the Busters nlaced second with 
14. Porter, Rendulich, Perico, Chap- 
man, Clever, Embry, and Matson all 
dunked over six points apiece proving 
that there is a Tiger threat from any

Logan Triumphs in Student Council Race 

1 . * 

Barbara Belew and Gerald Mullet admire the 
Richard "Tiny" Winegartner, a Logan supporter. 

Still friends and co-workers for the college arc 
Phil Logan, left, and Bill Walker, winner and 
loser in the presidential campaign. 

Phil Logan, an Arkansas City fresh- 
man was elected by the student body 
to head the student council for the 
next two semesters, in all-school 
balloting January 27. Both Phil and 
Bill Walker, the losing candiate, led 
extensive campaigns which proved to 
be the biggest in the history of the 

In an assembly last Wednesday both 
candiates were introduced and each 
made a campaign speech. Then a 
heated discussion about the candidates 
was conducted by Jerry Fife, Wal- 
ker's backer and Joe Prochaska speak- 
ing for Logan. With the Juco band 
livening things up, the meeting turned 
out to be a real old-fashioned cam- 
paign rally. 

Probably the most hilarious part 
of the campaign came when Jerry 
"Ti»y" Wingartner wore a barrel in 

and around the school anc during the 
assembly. The barrel bore the slogan, 
"Don't Lose our Pants, Vote for Lo- 

Although certain restrictions were 
placed on the campaigns this year the 
activities were not hindered, as prob- 
ably the largest campaign the school 
has ever seen was carried on. 

Mary Mowed, Daphne Dillard, Don? 
Reeves, Myra Morrow, Gayle Dozer, 
Sue Lawson, Dorothy McFarland, Gwen 

Brown, Joyce Clark, and Ailene 
were responsible for the ballots on 
the voting day. 

The ballots were officially counted 
by Joyce Clark, Harold Spahr, Jerry 
Feaster, David Circle, and Duane 
Nochols, at 4 p.m. Thursday. 

Joyce Clark, head of the counting 
board, said that 194 students out of a 
possible 284 voted in the election.

extended by Tiger Tales on the behalf 
of all the clubs and organizations, who 
wish to offer you an opportunity to 
Join one or more of the student activ- 

If you are enthusistic and full of 
pep, consider the Tiger Action Club, 
which is the school's booster club and 
is dominant in school functions.- 
(Males and females accepted!) 

If you can blow a horn, beat a 
drum, or are musically inclined, you 
might consider the Juco Band. (Male 
and female) 

The Annual is in desperate need of 
new staff members due to the losses at 
mid-term. Needed photographers, 
writers, artists, and salesmen and 
saleswomen may apply to Bill Walker, 

There is a variety of language clubs 
to interest all. Le Cercle Francais, 
which is the French club, Der Deut- 
sche Verein, a German club, and El 
Circulo Espanol, the Spanish club, 
will welcome you. 

"It's obvious this course just doestft have anything to offer anymore — 
so we'll just have to make it a "Required."

Also if there is any one who thinks 
he or she can write a better column 
than this, there is a place for you on 
the Tiger Tales staff. 

That guy with the crew-cut who 
runs around with a camera is Lowell 
Dierking. He hails from Caldwell, and 
he started taking pictures four or five 
years ago as a hobby. Now he says, 
"It's a combination of business and 
hob! y.". 

He takes all kinds of pictures, from 
wedding pictures to pictures for the 

Lowell is a freshman and is taking 
a liberal arts course. He plans to go 
four years to college and afterwards 
be a high school teacher. 

As a side interest he likes good 
popular music. 

Well, boys, here's the low-down on 
those strange girls who were in the 
office and halls Tuesday. Winfield here 
we come. Phyllis Thompson and Judy 
Bell visited here last Monday. And 
here's a little tidbit. Judv has enrolled 
in A.C.J.C. 

Here's the Ail-American gal-of-the 
week ! 

It is the five foot, three inch, hazel- 
eyed Mavis Arlene Gillock. Miss Gil- 
lock was born in December 17, 1936 in 
good ole Lakin Kansas, out where the 
wind blows free, and the wheat hangs 
on for dear life. 

When asked how she liked Juco she 
replied: "I like it very much, because 
everyone is so friendly." 

It seems that she likes Eddie Fisher 
on vocal records, and her popular song 
is "Count Your Blessings" by Eddie 

Mavis says she has two favorite 
classes. They are German and chorus. 

Watch out Dodge City! Shirley 
Flick, Paula Craig, and Lodine Heir 
plan to attend the game at Dodge on 
Friday night. 


Donna Lowmaster has been a pa- 
tient in Memorial Hospital this week.

Line Forms to Right at Bookstore 

Juco students spent hours last week 
lined up at the bookstore to get books 
for second-term classes. Mrs. K. R. 
Galle, operating the bookshop for 
college texts, always had customers, 
and sometimes more customers than 

Lowell Dierking, Tiger Tales pho- 
tographer, who snapped the picture 
above, claims it was just a coincidence 
that he caught so many basketball 
players and cheerleaders on film, and 
that it isn't a publicity shot for the 
Kahlermen. But he conceded that it 
was a good idea, and that maybe he'd 
buy a book, too.

4-year colleges this semester. 

Bohannon is shooting for the Em- 
poria State Hornets and Norwood for 
the Southwestern Builders, and the 
two will meet at least twice during 
the season. Burns transferred to a

a bit of work is yet to be done. 

Three or four pages of the annual

to the annual staff or room 102. They 
will not be returned.

Bengals Blast 
El Dorado and 
St. John's Eagles 

The Tigers romped over the El Do- 
rado Grizzles in a 72-53 conference 
tilt on the El Dorado court last Fri- 

Andy Matson, who got 19 points 
•and Berklie Perico, claiming 17, led 
the Tigers to a fairly easy victory. 
The individual scoring honors were 
taken bv Jack Jackard, El Dorado 
tenter, who got 29 points. 

Interest rose to fever pitch at one 
moment when an El Dorado player 
shot a free throw at the Ark City 
goal. Officials finally got it straight- 
ened out. 

Jim Sullivan, who became eligible 
at mid-year, joined the squad for 
his first conference competition. 

This win gave the Tigers a clean 
slate for the first half with five wins 
and no losses in conference play. 
Their closest opponent, Pratt, is two 
games behind. 

The "B" game was a scrappy, hard- 
fought contest in which the Tiger B's 
subdued the Grizzles 71-51. Elswick, 
McCune, and Elrod were the big guns 
in this one, each collecting 15 points 

or more. 

* # * * 

The St. John's Eagles fell as victim 
number 13 to the fast moving, sharp- 
shooting Tigers 85-75, at Winfield, 
Jan. 22! The Cats' accuracy at the 
free- throw line was the ultimate dif- 
ference, as the Arkats hit 71.7 per 
cent from the charity line. 

Andy Matson was the high scorer 
for the Arks with 26 points, while 
every Tiger who took part in contest 
broke into the scoring column. Other 
Tigers in action in the St. John's 
court were Perico, 15; Rendulich.,13; 
Embry, 11; Hernandez, 8; Cleaver, 4; 
Porter, 4; and Oyler, 4 points.

Maintaining that anyone with nor- 
mal intelligence could develop memory

Tigers Tackle 
Five in Next 
Two Weeks 

With the first round of Western 
Division play completed, the Arkansas 
City Junior College Tigers still re- 
main in the league lead with five wins 
and no losses. 

Two Crucial Games 

The next two contests for the Cats 
are both away from home, and should 
prove the out-come of the final West- 
ern Division standings. On February 
4, the Arks will travel to Ford County, 
to play the Dodge City Conqs, for a 
crucial match. Last time these two 
clubs met the Tigers stopped the 
Conqs 59-56, on the Cats' home court. 
After the Dodge game the Tigers will 
travel on west to play Garden City, 
who the Arks beat on their home 
court 86-50. 

After the two-game road trip the 
Tigers will return home to engage 
the St. Johns Eagles on February 8, 
in their second meeting. Last time 
these clubs met the Arks out-classed 
the Johnnies 85-75, at Winfield. 
Pratt and Hutch Dangerous 

On February 11, the Arkats will 
trek to Hutchinson for their return 
encounter with the Blue Dragons, in 
a Western Division clash. The Tigers 
defeated Hutch in a previous game, 
at Ark City, by a narrow 84-80 score. 

The Tigers will again return home 
to play the up-and-coming Pratt Bea- 
vers, who knocked-off Dodge City 72- 
68, while the Bengals busted the 
Conqs 59-56. 

Enrollment Nears 400 
In Day, Night Classes 

The entire enrollment for the second 
semester has not been completed to 
this date, but final tabulations on the 
number of students enrolled for the 
second semester, should be ascertained 
next week. 

Approximately 300 regular students 
have enrollment in the day classes, 
and the night classes have in the 
neighborhood of 100 enrollees. 

Cats Cage 
Parsons Cards; 
B's Rap Millers 

Coach Dan Kahler's win prediction 
came true as the Tigers swamped the 
Parsons Cards 84-48 in the Aud-Gym 
Tuesday night. 

The Tigers jumped off to an early 
lead, and never faltered. The Cats 
took a 14 point lead at half-time, 
44-30, and continued to increase it 
as the game drew on. 

Andy Matson took top scoring 
honors, with 19 points, while 6-foot, 
3-inch Lome Schaltter was high for 
the Birds with 17. 

The fourteen Tigers who saw action 
and collected the 84 points were Mat- 
son with 19 points, Cleaver 15, Porter 
10, Embry 9, Perico 9, Hernandez 6, 
Shanks 6, Elswick 4, Rapp, Davis, 
and Oyler each with 2. Sullivan, 
Smith, and McCune played but failed 
to break into the scoring column. 

It was the fourteenth straight win 
for the Arkats and their fifteenth win 
of the season aeainst four losses. 

Tony Kendulich, a regular on the 
Tiger squad, did not see action in the 
game with the Cards due to a sprained 
ankle, but is expected to be in con- 
dition to make the trip to Dodge City 
and Garden City the last of the week. 

In the "B" game the Tiger Cubs 
up-rooted the Millers Dairy Milkmen 
in the pliminary contest 73-46 
Charles Elswick was high for the 
"B's" with 16 points. 

Jan Chapman Accents 
Arizona U. Grid Scholarship 

Jan Chapman, Juco freshman, has 
accepted a football scholarship at the 
University of Arizona. Jan had talked 
(jf going there to school last fall but 
changed his mind in favor of Juco. 
When asked why he changed his mind 
he replied: "It's a once-in-a-lifetime 
offer, so I decided to take advantage 
of it". 

In junior college he was a quarter- 
back on the football team and a 
basketball guard. He said he liked 
Arkansas City Junior College very 
much, but could not pass up such an

housing project is coming along "just 
fine" and that he expects the house 
to be finished by the end of the semes- 
ter so that it may be sold at auction. 

The house is a five-room affair, with 
six closets and a bath. It is to be heat- 
ed by peremeter heating. Every room 
will be laid with hardwood floors. 

A contract will be let to a licensed 
electrician for the wiring, and a 
plumbing contractor will install the 
plumbing fixtures. 

The three students working on the 
house during the first semester were 
Roger Bowser, Kenneth Rundle, and 
Don Branch. They were joined this 
term by Warren Wing, Kenneth

*JatUz *1<de4, 

The crispness of winter finds a new 
fad in college apparel. It is a revival 
of the old reliable pork-pie hats, which 
most juco boys are wearing. 

To really prove its effectiveness, 
Carl Holman and A. E. Maag have 
even changed their hats to the style 
of the college gang. In the case of 
Allan Maag, Mike Smith and Gerald 
Mullett had to "persuade" him to flat- 
ter, his out, and the effect-turned out 
to be "surprisingly attiactive," some 

Most colorful of all the hats are 
those of Charlie Porter, who picked 
up a Wood-red number in Dodge City, 
and a scotch plaid sky-piece owned by 
Joe Prochaska. 

Bud Donley, who transferred to Em- 
poria State at mid-year, has been 
pledged to the Sigma Phi Epsilon 

Leon Fitzgerald, '54, is on the staff 
of the Review, published by McKen- 
dree College, Lebanon, 111., where he 
i.~ a junior. 

Life's most embarassing moment 
came to Barbara Belew Friday, when 
she was locked in the darkroom 
adjoining the chemistry lab with 
Gerald Mullett, while instructor D. C. 
Stark was out of the lab. At a 
strategic moment after Stark's re- 
turn, the fiends released her, and she 
had to walk the entire length of the 
lab in a blaze of blushes. 

Little Man On Campus 


by Dick Bibler 

"Well I've always heard a college education 'broadens' one." 

August Trollman, juco band direc- 
tor h^s discovered a new way to make 
noise without the aid of a musical 
instrument. Trollman found that when 
two carp are forced together sotne- 
ihin»' that resembles the lost chord is 
produced. He proved this when he was 
involved in a minor accident last Tues- 

Ira White, or should we say "Clyde 
Beatty II," captures wild animals in 
his fi'ont yard. A coyote was captured 
in front of his farm home 11 miles 
west of town by Ira and some neigh- 
bors. This is no tall tale. Ira has 
pictures to prove the story! 

Wes Jordan can fully sympathize 
with Don Smith whose car shot a rod 
on the way to El Dorado. Wes's little 
bus tried the same trick while headed 
home from Pratt. 

Boys, the odds are worse than ever 
before. Latest calculations reveal that 
there are o,125 boys to every girl. 
Speed is the word, men. 

Mzet MiU Ga-ed 

The second semester finds a new 
freshman blooming in the Juco flower 
bed. She is pretty, blonde, 5 foot-3 
inch, 120-pound, Judy Bell, from Win- 
field. Judy was born in Winfield on 
November 19, 1936, and is a graduate 
of Winfield High School. Important 
vital statistic: Miss Bell is engaged 
to Russell Welton, who is enrolled 
at Hutchinson Junior College. 

Judy's favorite subject is English 
literature because she plans to enter 
the teaching field as an instructor in 
English. Her opinion of Juco is "I 
really like it, it's swell." 

The color of turquoise stands out as 
being her favorite. The top tunes she 
selects are "I Spoke too Soon" and 
"Anyone Can Fall in Love." The band 
of Billy May holds the top in 
orchestras. The menu for Judy is 
french fried shrimp.

Future Teachers 
Prove They Can 
Get Good Jobs 

By Marilyn Hatfield 

Preparing for the future in the 
teaching profession are the members 
of the local chapter cf the Future 
Teachers of America. A national or- 
ganization since 1947, it has made a 
great deal of progress in the past 

The FT A is organized as a club in 
high schools and as a chapter in 
colleges. More than 24,000 active mem- 
bers belong to over 500 chapters in 
colleges and universities throughout 
th- United States. 

Six purposes of the FTA are to 
develop a professional attitude to- 
ward leaching to promote teaching 
as a desirable occupation with better 
working conditions to insure an ac- 
ceptable salary, to learn the problems 
which teaching involves, to under- 
stand the problems of organization, 
and to perceive the necessity of organ- 

Before a local chapter of FTA can 
be organized, selection of officers, a 
name and constitution must be made, 
and various projects, programs and 
activities have to be stated. 

The local C.E. St. John Chapter of 
Future Teachers of America was 
organized on November 2, 1951. 

Teachers graduating from the jun- 
ior college have had no difficulty in 
securing positions in elementary 
schools in Cowley County and sur- 
rounding communities, Dean K. R. 
Galle pointed out this week. About 25 
graduates are now teaching in one- 
room schools in this county and the 
local schools claim 12 instructors who 
have recieved teacher training in 
junior college classes. Others have 
obtained jobs in Winfield, Wellington, 
Wichita, and other communities. 

Sin^e the first part of 1955, the 
State Department of Education has 
changed its requirements for the 
elementary teaching certificate, and 
from now on, those who wish to teach 
in elementary schools must complete 
more work, eventually being required 
to have four years of college. The 
degree teacher will receive a cer- 
tificate which is good for three years 
for the first time, and must be renewed 
by taking five college hours during 
each five year period thereafter. 


Parsons Has Increase 

Parsons Junior College had 267 
st-^d^-'ts in the college department at 
the end of the first week of the second 
semester, an increase of eleven over 
the fall enrollment. 

Dean Kurt R. Galle 

College-High School 
Heads Re-elected 
For 1955-56 Term 

Dean K.R. Galle, Prin. H.J. Clark, 
and Prin. Harold Loucks were re- 
elected at the February meeting of the 
Board of Education to their posts as 
administrators in the college, senior 
high school, and junior high school, 

Dean Galle was chosen to head the 
college for the tenth year. He received 
his A.B. degree at Bethel College 
where he majored in history and social 
science. He did his graduate work at 
the University of Chicago where he 
received his M. A. before coming to 
Ark City. 

Dean Galle taught two years in the 
high school, and from 1925 to 1930 in 
the college before he was appointed 
assistant dean. He replaced E.A. Funk 
as dean of the college and principal of 
the senior high school in 1946. He is 
now director of secondary education 
besides holdng the deanship. 

Advertising Quota tor Yearbook 
Has Been Filled, Maag Says 

A. E. Maag has announced that the 
advertising quota for the Tiger, juco 
yearbook, has been completed. Ninety 
Ark City merchants have co-operated 
in helping the annual staff, enabling 
the group to put out a bigger and bet- 
ter annual. 

The next shipment of layouts will 
be sent in February 25. The remaining 
problem is getting the sophomore 
pictures taken and sent in 

Collegians Need To 
Learn Alma Mater 

It seems that an unusual situation 
arose in Phill Logan's inaugration 
ceremony last week, that being that 
the student body was lacking some- 
thing. That something was knowledge 
of the words to the school song. Foi 
those interested, here are the words. 
(Cat them out and keep them handy.) 


All Hail to thee our Junior College 

Whose halls we love so well. 

In our hearts fond memories 

Of thee will ever dwell. 

The Orange and Black are colors 


Then hail to thee! All hail to thee 

Our school we hold do dear. 

That wave so proudly here 

A. S. Trollman, instrumental in- 
structor, has announced that the Juco 
band will attempt to write band ar- 
rangements, so that the Alma Mater 
can be played at all athletic events 
and on public occasions. 

The words and melody were written 
in 1952 by C. L. Hinchee, retired vocal 
instructor, and was arranged for piano 
by Mary Whaley, class of 1953. 

Bill Foster President 
Of New Chorus Club 

Bill Foster, senior from Cedar Vale, 
has been elected president of the col- 
lege chorus club, the newly-formed 
music organization. Other officers are 
Dick Leu, sophomore from Belle 
Plaine, vice-president; Gwen Brown, 
freshman from Burden, secretary- 
treasurer; and Dennis Rickard, fresh- 
man student council representative 
from South Haven. Laurence Hull, 
vocal music director, is sponsor of 
the group.

Lloyd D. Cordwell fell victim to an 
accident two weeks ago when his pick- 
up truck overturned on a detour one 
mile east of Caldwell. He suffered a 
broken bone in his left knee and will

one month. Cordwell's home is in 
Anthony, and he is enrolled as a fresh- 
man in juco. 



Tigers Win Three, Lose 
Two, Still Lead League 


Despite two downfalls at Dodge 
City and Hutchinson, the Tigers con- 
tinued to hold the top position of the 
Western Division as the season ap- 
proached its climax. 

The Juco Tigers flooded the Pratt 
Beavers' dam Tuesday night flowing 
to a S2-62 victory. This was a very 
crucial game for the Tigers, but with 
fine determination they gained an- 
other step on the Western Division 

The game was fairly rough with 
hoth sides collecting numerous fouls. 
At halftime the Arkats were out in 
front 45-31. Coach Dan Kahler cleared 
the entire bench, with all men seeing 
action in the latter part of the contest. 

Skip Cleaver was the big gun for 
the Kahlermen with 14 points. He was 
followed bv Perico with 13, Porter, 9; 
Embry, 11; Matson, 11; Sullivan, 8; 
Rendulich, 8; Oyler, 4; Hernandez, 2; 
and Rapp, 2. For the Beavers Jenkins 
was tops with 13. Coloson and Schnitt- 
ker each had 11, followed by Neely 
and Johnson, 8; Willis, 7: and Hen- 
phill, 2. 

In a preliminary game the Tiger 
"B" team defeated the APCO Oilers 
bv a 81-61 score, Charlie Elswick led 
the B's with 26. 

The Hutchinson Blue Dragons gave 
the Tigers their second consecutive 
Western Division League loss and 
the sixth foe the season, dropping' the 
Cats 85-81 at Hutchinson, Febru- 
ary 11. 

The Tiger* out classed th<> Dragons 
from the field, hitting 37 field goals 
to the Dragons' 22, but the Dragons' 
edge came from the free-throw circle, 
where they netted 41 points to the 
Re sals' 7. 

Ilicrh scorer* for the game were 
two Dragons, Bob Schartzkoph and 
Artie Schippers, each counting 20. 
The Arkat scoring included Porter, 6; 
Perico, 10; Cleaver, 13; Embry, 6; 
Matson, 10; Sullivan, 10; Hernandez, 
6- Rendulich, 12; and Shanks, 2. 

The Conqs handed the Tigers their 
firs* def^-'t in 15 games at Dodge City 
February 4, 95-92. The game was a 
very close contest all the way with 
the half time score knotted at 48-all. 

Tony Rendulich and Jim Sullivan 
shared the scoring honors for the 
Arkats, with Joe Wileoxen of Dodge 
taking top game honors with 29 points. 

Other Tigers seeing action in the 
Dodge game were Porter, with 10 
points: Perico, 10; Oyler, 6; Cleaver, 
t; and Matson, 16. Embry and Her- 
nandez both took part in the contest 

(nit did not score.

western Kansas road trip the Bengals 
bounced back from their loss to Dodge 
to "bust the Bronks" of Garden Citv, 

The Cats took a 46-44 half time lead 
which later spread to 18 points with 
only minutes remaining. 

Ten Tigers saw action in the game 
against Garden. With Richard "Skip" 
Cleaver taking top scoring honors for 
the Arks with 20, while Porter and 
Matson both collected 19. The game's 
scorer was Buster Eddie Dater,- with 
32 points. 

On the eve of February 8, the St. 
John's Eagles swooped into Arkansas 
City, only to get their wing's clipped 
by the Juco Tigers. 

The Bengals started very slowly in 
the first half to find the score nip-and- 
tuck. In the last half the Johnnies 
began to lose their effectiveness and 
the Tigers started to pull ahead with 
a bigger margin. 

Charles Porter who lead the scoring 
for ACJC with 22 points was followed 
i.y i'erico with 14, Cleaver 12, Sullivan 
12, Oyler 4, Embry 2, Matson 3,

Cats two in a row since Dodge broke 
their streak of 14 games.

Af&at iA lite, ^im.e - - - 

Much help is needed of the student 
body of ACJC in the maintenance of 
the clubrooms and of the entire build- 
ing. The -taxpayers of Arkansas City 
are paying for this school, from which 
we the students derive the benefits. 

i his building is not yet paid for and 
it will be some time before we ever 
get another one, so let's all pitch in 
by keeping what we have, help the 
custodians keep it clean and don't 
abuse it. 

The cluhroom has been a great ex- 
pense ever since it was fixed up. It 
is- the high cost of the clubroom that 
drains the funds of the student coun- 
cil. It is costing us money that would 
be spent for other student activities, 
such as dances and parties. If every- 
one will take it as his or her personal 
responsibility to keep it clean and 
in good working order, so that it 
won't be a thorn in the side of us 
the students. All that is necessary is 
for all of us to stop and think before 
we act. ....--.. ■■

Red Ravens by 
One Point 64-63 

The highly favored Tigers traveled 
to Coffeyville on February 22, only to 
be upset by the Ravens in a close

way with neither of the teams gaining 
a substantial lead. As the contest 
ended the teams still did not know who 
had won, but the officials ruled time 
had run out before Charlie Porter 
scored a final bucket, and gave the 
game to the Red Ravens, even though 
a horn or whistle had not sounded

between two Ravens, Pruitt and Par- 
ker, who both collected 18 points. Bill 
Embry was high for the Cats with 17,

those where there could be a chance of 
a possible upset. The reason for this 
is that the Grizzlies were beaten

Its always nice to win at anything 
we do, but did you ever think of all 
the effort it takes from people other 
than the basketball team and the 
colorfully decorated cheerleaders, the 
men and women behind the scenes who 
have contributed a great deal of time 
and energy to give us a sucessful sea- 
son ? At this time let's acknowledge 
some of the people who helped make 
victory possible. Toast these: 

To Assistant Coach Tom Steigleder 
and his "B" squad, who kept the 
regulars fighting for their spots on 
the"A" team. 

To Terry Hodkin and the workers in 
the concession stand, who kept the 
fans in good voice by providing "lubri- 
cants" for their throats and "fuel" for 
their bodies. 

To the "paper-hangers", Jerry Fife, 
Bill Walker, and Bruce Bittle, who 
continually kept the signs up with the 
familiar sayings, "Go Tigers, Go." 

To Dorothy McFarland and her Ti- 
ger Action Clubbers who did the mean 
little jobs and made all the arrange- 
ments for Athletic Sweetheart corona- 

To the band, under the direction of 
August Trollman, who made the "en- 
joyable noise" at the games. 

To the teams managers, Irvin 
Wahlenmaier and Don Smith, who 
patched the team up and kept them 
looking sharp. 

And to the fan, who continuity sup- 
ported the team, both in victory and 
defeat, and gave his voice as well as 
his money for our success. 

"Oh, I wouldn't worry to much about passing Miss Freeman As long 

as I'm grading on the curve."

structor and basketball coach for the

Plans for Annual Junior College 

Play Being Made, Set for May 13 

"Brighten the Corner," "Grammercy 
Ghost," and "The Night of January 
Sixteenth" are the tentative selections

Kahler, director for the production, 
stated last Monday. The first two are 
comedies and the last is a drama, one 
of which will be presented' on the 
evening of May 13 in the junior high 
school auditorium. 

Kahler said there has been a "very 
promising" interest in the play by the 
students, and that both freshmen and 
sophomores are eligible to try out for 

Try-outs will be held the first week 
of April and rehearsals will begin the 
following week. Kahler will chose 
from the three the play v/hich will be 
given and will know by the time try- 
outs start which ylap it is.

igerama Theme 


In a meeting of the social commit- 
tee Monday during assembly period, 
"Blues in the Night" was selected for 
the theme for the 1955 Tigerama, set 
for April 15. The college auditorium 
was selected for the site. 

Although "Blues in the Night" is a 
song title in itself, the committee is 
not limiting decorations to that par- 
ticular selection, but is taking var- 
ious songs with the word "blue" in the 
title and integrating these themes into 
decorative scheme. "Blue Mirage" was 
chosen for the refreshment table. 
Other songs under consideration are 
"Rhapsody in Blue," "Blue Moon," 
"St. Louis Blues," and "Blue Tango." 
March 31 has been selected for a work 
night and the student body has been 
asked to lend a hand in preparing dec- 

A few committees with their chair- 
men have been appointed. These in- 
clude the cloak room committee, head- 
ed by Margaret Shea; refreshments, 
by Barbara Belew; and signs arid 
posters, by Jerry Fife. Other commit- 
tees will be appointed and fu'ther plans 
will be made as the need arises. 

Arrangements have been made 
though to include a false ceiling in the 
decoration plans this year, Morris 
Jarvis, social chairman has revealed. 
Permanent eye-screws will be installed 
by the carpentry class to allow for 
decorations but prevent marring of 
the walls of the auditorium. 

aldine Smith, Jerry Waltrip, Charles 
Watson, Cathy Weninger, Allison 
Whitaker, Gail White, Sue Wilson,

and Jay Woodard. 

Along with the numbers by the 
choir, Dean K. R. Galle and one other 
member of the faculty will summarize 
briefly the activities available at AC- 
JC, and talk to seniors who are inter- 
ested in enrolling at ACJC,.

Juco Teachers Heard 
In Education Broadcast 

The function and value of the Junior 
College was the topic which was 
discussed by seven faculty members 
on teachers association program over 
KSOK March 21. P. M. Johnson, Dean 
K. R.Galle, Carl Holman, Dan Kahler, 
Miss Henrietta Courtright, J. K. Day, 
and A. E. Maag, moderator, took part. 

This program is a bi-weekly Mon- 
day night program bringing to the 
public the work of the school system. 
It is sponsored by the City Teachers 

If you've ever seen an attractive 
five foot nine inch brown haired girl 
busily working out her algebra while 
helping a couple of other students 
through their difficulties it was prob- 
ably our Miss Co-Ed, Marileene El- 
more freshman from Wellington. 

Marileene graduated from Welling- 
ton High School in 1954 and enrolled 
here at the college for the fall sem- 
ester. As you would suspect her most 
interesting subject is math and iMss 
Courtwright rates as her number one 

She is a member of the Glint Club 
and the junior college band, which in- 
cidentally she says is her favorite. 
The Four Freshmen's rendition of 
"Mood Indgo" takes an easy first on 
her hit parade. Her likes which seem 
to be numerous include sewing, base- 
ball, basketball and pineapple pie. It 
seems as if pet peeves are few and 
far. .between as far as Marileene is 

Ben Steele, the unsung pianist of 
Juco, and his two-fingered assistant 
Berklie Perico, had quite a jam ses- 
sion last Tuesday in the auditorium. 
Bystanders, including Nate Sanders 
Jack McCune, Jerome Moore, Shane 
Moore, Bruce Bittle, Wes Jordan, and 
"By" Gosh highly approved of these 
boys' "rendition" of "Chopsticks" and 
other pieces. 

Linwood Burns, '54, now a member 
of the Pepperdine College track team, 
has been hampered in his high jump 
competition by a leg injury, according 
to the Pepperdine Graphic. 

P. M. Johnson, social science in- 
structor in the junior college, attended 
a Kansas College Teachers of Govern- 
ment meeting last Friday and Satur- 
day, at El Dorado. Mr. Johnson took 
part in a panel discussion which dealt 
with the problems of teaching govern* 
ment classes.

of the kitchen, bathroom, and the top 
of the cabinets will be of inlaid lino- 
leum. Imitation tile will be used on the 
walls of the bathroom. The finish of 
the living room will be of the modern 
half-round design. 

Many people have inquired about 
the house, but there have been no 
other plans than to auction it off to 
the highest bidder after school is out.

in two points in the final quarter. 
;• Andy Matson was the big gun for 
the Sophs., collecting 30 points, while

lew Cage Rules 

on'fc Affect 


The rules committee of the N.C.A.A. 
has voted in three rule changes in 
their last meeting which will take 
effect in the 1955-56 basketball season, 
among them being the rather contro- 
versial rule of widening the free throw 
lane from six to twelve feet. A new 
rule which keep a player from drib- 
bling for more than 5 seconds in an 
effort to stall the ball was also insti- 
gated. A third rule, which in the opin- 
ion of most authorities is of value, is 
the code change which starts the clock 
when the ball leaves the referee's hand 
during a jump ball, and not when it 
Was touched by one of the players as 

According to Dan Kahler the widen- 
ing of the free throw lane from 6 to 
twelve feet will have little effect upon 
the Tiger's style of play for the 1955- 
56 basketball season, as far as defense 
i:; concerned anyway. However Kahler 
pointed out that the Jueo offence must 
operate more "fluidly" that is with 
more passing and ball moving in order 
to combat the zone defenses that will 
arise as a result of the wider lane. 
Kahler plans to continue with his 
sinking man-to-man defense which 
proved highly effective during the 
past season. 

Although the bonus-shot rule has 
been extended to cover the entire game 
it is not expected to cause as much 
controversy as the new "stalling" 
rule. This rule prevents a player from 
dribbling more than 5 consecutive sec- 
onds while an opposing player is with- 
in guarding distance. Many coaches 
believe that because the enforcement 
of this rule depends largely on the 
referee's judgement, it constitutes a 
weakness. Coach Kahler is of the 
opinion that this rule should make far 
more proficient dribblers. 

Tracksiers Prepare 

For Meets At 

El Dorado, Tonkawa 

The junior college track team is now 
in the midst of heavy workouts in 
preparation for the ElDorado and 
Tonkawa triangular meets April 1 and 

Coach Tommy Steigleder's squad of 
12 men is made up of 7 freshmen and 
5 sophomores. The thinclads are es- 
pecially strong in the clashes with Jim 
Sullivan, Tommy Davis, Pat Koehler 
and Marcellus Duckett showing up as 
top prospects. Half-mile chores will be 
handled by Bill Walker and Doug 
Pritts, with Fritts doubling in the high 
hurdles and discus. The squads lone 
miler is sophomcre Merlin Burnette. 
Mack Choate, although on the doubt- 
ful list due to a bad leg, is the best 
choice for the 440. 

In the field events Jack MeCune will 
pole-vault and high jump in addition 
to his duties in the low hurdles. Pat 
Koehler, century man, will also enter 
the broadjump. Jim Estep will throw 
the javelin, while Bud England and 
Elmo Johnson team together to handle 
shot-put assignments. 

(' hoir Gains $28 in Campaign 
To Pay for New Robes 

The college choir raised $28 through 
the backward sock-hop which was 
held last Friday evening in the college 
auditorium. The money will be used 
to pay for the newly acquired choir 
robes and stoles. 

A quartet made up of Dean K. R. 
Galle, Lawrence Hull, Dan Stark, and 
Allen Maag helped provide entertain- 
ment for the affair. Pat Morton and 
Mavis Gillock sang a duet, "Sisters". 
Bill Elrod and Bob Edwards teamed 
up in an impersonation of Homer and 
Jethroe. A harmonica solo by Bill 
Walker completed the floor show. 

The stage was decorated in the out- 
line of a country store with a clothes- 
line hung with socks suspended from 
the ce;V'.<ig in front of the stage. 

The chorus will also receive a share 
of the proceeds from the alumni bas- 
ketball game as soon as the other 
obligations are met. 

Dorelles Erown and John Cheuv- 
ront, jueo 1954 grads and now juniors 
at Emporia State, were named to the 
President's Honor Roll on the basis of 
their first semester grades.

To Tigerama 

Twenty-one invitations to the 1955 
Tigerama have been sent out to the

of the school board were invited to at- 
tend the annual spring affair. 

The dance will be held from 9 to 12 
n. m. in the junior college auditorium. 
A reception line composed of Dr. and 
Mrs. Jerry Vineyard, Dean and Mrs. 
Kurt Galle, Miss Henrietta Court- 
wright, Phil Logan, and Morris Jarvis 
will form in the front hall of the col- 
lege building. 

Jarvis said that some changes in 
the decorations will have to be made 
due to the lack of cooperation of the 
student body in participating in the 
work nights. "Blues in the Night", is 
the main theme, but the extent of 
further decorations will depend largely 
on the support given to the social

Geology Class Finds Lab 
In New State Lake 

The geology class, with instructor 
Daniel Stark, visited the site of Lake 
VValdschmidt last week in search of 
specimens. They found the rim of the 
c myon is being continually subjected 
to weathering and erosion. Frost 
wedging, freezing, and thawin c are 
widening the cracks and pushing the 
lime tone rocks apart. Slow solubility 
of the exposed limestone leaves many 
rough, jagged rocks with holes 
through them. Above the limestone 
ledges and back up the hillsides, the 
large limestone rocks have completely 
dissolved; and only the more resistent 
rocks and geodes are to be found. 

The freshly cut spillway shows the 
bedrock of limestone with all of its 
stratifications and varves. The carbon 
content of the rock varies with con- 
ditions and seasons 'tinder which it 

was formed. Usually limestone de- 
posited under water in the winter 
contains more carbon and is black 
in color. In the summer, with heat, 
the water looses carbon dioxide gas. 
This causes precipitation of calcium 
carbonate that is much whiter in ap- 
pearance. These annual stratifications 
of different color in rocks are called 

\1 irious cementations, concreta 
tions, and more resistant rocks are to 
be seen in these stratifications. A 
few sea shells are found embedded in 
the rocks. Wind erosion was also 
noted in several places during the 
trip out to the lake and back to 

Other field trips are being planned 
by the class as a laboratory .part. of 
their study of geology.

For Easter 

"You can tell the nature of the man 
by his hands," the Rev. Joe Detamore, 
pastor of the Christian church, told 
Junior College students April 6 at 
their annual Easter Assembly. 
"Christ's hands were friendly hands, 
forgiving hands, redemptive hands." 

Choir members appeared for the 
first time in their new choir robes, 
black with orange stoles, and sang 
under the direction of Laurence Hull, 
vocal music director, "Bless The Lord, 
O My Soul," "Christ Is Risen," 

A meditation, "The Seven Last 
Words," was presented by Joe Pro- 
chaska, and Dick Leu pronounced the 
Benediction. Audience singing was 
under the direction of Mr. Hull; and 
Gail White served as accompanist. 
Choir members were Jane Bissitt, 
Roger Bowser, Ina Carter, Vance Day, 
Donna Fluis, Bill Foster, Mavis Gil- 
lock, Marilyn Hatfield, Terry Hodkin,

serving were Mildred Brazle, Evelyn 
Henderson, Marie Keefe, Jean Lacque- 
ment, Beverly Boswell, Janea Dunlavy, 
and Sue Wilson. 

The voting preparations were under 
the direction of Dorothy McFarland. 

School Employees Vote 
On Adding Social Security 
To Retirement Plan 

Arkansas City teachers and school 
employees voted Tuesday in a state- 
wide referendum on social security, in 
compliance with a state directive is- 
sued under legislation adopted by the 
1955 state legislature. 

Should the referendum vote prove 
favorable, the school employees of 
Kansas will come under the retirement 
provisions of the Federal Social Secur- 
ity Act, as well as those of the pres- 
ent state system. The effect will be the 
provision of approximately double re- 
tirement benefits to public school em- 
ployees, and is expected to give more 
ne rly adequate retirement income to 
a group which hns until recently been 
provided with none. The state retire- 
ment system was installed in 1941. 

The double coverage afforded by the 
two systems, if adopted, is made pos- 
sible by recent changes in the national

President: Is Speaker 
For Commencement 

Dr F. L. McCluer, president of Lin- 
denwood College, St. Charles, Mo., has 
been selected speaker of the com- 
mencement excercises on May 27. 

Prior to being president of Linden- 
wood, Dr. McCluer was president of 
Westminster College, Fulton Mo., was 
host to Sir Winston Churchill at the 
time of the famous Churchill "Fulton 
Speech" which fathered the Western 
Union, the Military Aid program, the 
Marshall Plan, and identified Russia 
as an enemy. 

It has been reported by Dr. J. J. 
Vineyard, superintendent of schools, 
that the high school will graduate 
nearly 200 students, while the junior 
college will graduate 93, its largest 
class in 32 years. 

Commencement exercises for the 
junior college and senior high school 
graduating classes will be held in the 
auditorium-gymnasium, at 8 p. m., 
May 27. Baccalaurate services are set 
for the preceeding Sunday, at 8 p. m., 
in the same place. The speaker has not 
yet been announced. 

Stanley Floyd To Teach

Tulsa Destination 
For Printers' 



Tentative plans have been laid by 
the Junior college-high school printing 
classes to visit the Tulsa Graphic Arts 
Industries, Tulsa, Okla., for this year's 
annual class field trip, A. F. Buffo, 
announced this week. 

Both members of the high school 
and junior college printing classes 
will make the trip. This year's juco 
members are Young Snodgrass, Char- 
les Trenary, Richard Ruch, and Bill 

In past years the printers have 
visited Wichita and Oklahoma City. 
At Wichita they visited the McCor- 
mick-Armstrong Printing Co. and 
Western Lithograph Co., both large 
job printers who both have three 
different printing processes, Mid- 
Continent Engravers; Mid-Central 
Type Foundry; the Wichita Eagle; 
and the Wichita Beacon. 

In previous trips to Oklahoma City 
they have visited the Semco Color 
Press, the organization which prints 
both the college and high school an- 
nuals; the Daily Oklahoman and 
Times newspaper plant which has a 
^12 million press room, and various 
book binderies and engraving plants. 

The purpose of the field trips is to 
give the students a chance to observe 
the different types and processes not 
available in ordinary school shops. 
Also it gives them a better insight to 
their future occupations in the print- 
ing field, Mr. Buffo said. 

Prochaska To Try 
For Commission 
in Marine Corps 

Joe Prochaska, sophomore, is a 
candidate through the Platoon Leaders 
Class for a commission in the United 
States Marine Corps. This type of 
officer training requires no military 
study during the academic year, but 
consists of two intensive six-week 
summer training periods at Quantico, 
Va. These are normally taken between 
the sophomore-junior year and the 
junior-senior year. After the first six 
weeks the candidate is ranked as a 
corporal in the Marine Corp Reserve, 
and after the third training period, a 
sergeant. The commission is received 
when a third session after graduation 
is completed. 

Joe said that if granted a com- 
mission he considering becoming a 
career officer.

Spring Sports 
In Full Swing 
For Tigers 

The spring sport teams are in the 
midst of heavy workouts getting 
ready for the series of meets the lat- 
ter part of this month. All but the 
golf team have been having regular 
workouts and are in full swing. 

The junior college tennis team had 
a busy schedule during the last week, 
playing El Dorado Thursday, Tonk- 
awa yesterday, St. Johns today, and

for a dual meet with Oklahoma A and 
Independence April 20, and Emporia 
State April 27. The schedule is rather 
tentative and uncertain and no regular 
practice sessions have been made be- 
cause of this. Roger Bowser turned in 
one of the best scores for nine holes 
this season, a 36, in practice last week. 

Juco's tracksters journeyed to Cof- 
feyville today and are readying for 
the Independence invitational April 20. 
One of the biggest events of the sea- 
son, the K. U. relays is scheduled for 
April 23. Steigleder will take only 4 
men to Lawrence, since the only jun- 
ior college event is the sprint medley 
relay. The regular Coffey ville relays 
will be held on April 28.

It's a Dead Class, Not Dull 
Students in J. K. Day's physiology 
class have proved to their instructor 
that they are dead. Blood test made 
during a laboratory session showed 
that 12 of 14 had t>o low red count- 
to live. A later try came out more 
successfully, with each student having 
sufficient count to survive.

score of 81 to 76. The Tiger's big gun 
for the meet was Jack McCune, who 
compiled 15 x /-> points to lead the 
Tigers in individual honors. 

Ark City hopes were dimmed early 
when Jim Sullivan pulled a leg muscle 
and was unable to compete in any sub- 
sequent events. The Arks took eight 
firsts and six seconds in the meet. St. 
Johns, the third team in the triangu- 
lar, was able to place in only a few 

Coach Tommy Steigleder said that 
the Tigers' failure to win any of the 
relays played a major role in Tonka- 
wa's victory.

Chorus Begins 
Annual Trips 
To Area Schools 

The junior college chorus and a 
staff of five members journeyed to 
Dexter and Cambridge, April 19, for 
the start of the annual series of 
spi-ing trips to surrounding com- 

In addition to the choir and its 
director, Lawrence Hull, Janie Gates, 
Gail White, "Chuck" Watson, Don 
Smith, and Henry Kirk made the trip. 
Janie gave a reading, "To Be or Not 
to Be," Gail played a medley of clas- 
sical and popular tunes, Henry gave 
a speech, "What Kind of a Character 
Do You Go With," and Don served as 
master of ceremonies. 

The chorus presented a varied group 
of six songs at each town. Among 
these were "Ezekiel Saw the Wheel," 
"Younger than Springtime," and 
"Wonderful, Wonderful Copenhagen." 

The group returned through Bur- 
den and stopped at a park there for a 
picnic lunch. All fared quite well with 
the exception of the school bus which 
suffered quite a dent in the top right 
front corner when it hit a guy cable 
under the city water tower located at 
the park. In an effort to miss fche 
center pipe, the driver, Dick Wilson, 
struck the cable, which was obscured 
by a tree branch. The amount of dam- 
age was immediately determined, but 
there were no injuries to any of the 

Dean K. R. Galle and Coach Dan

Annual TAC 'Slumber Party 
Is Over; No Bones Broken 

From all avaiable reports the TAC 
slumber party was quite a success. 
Tenniquoit, volley ball, and badminton 
games were played earlier in the even- 
ing, but after that the curtain dropped 
as far as mere males are concerned. 
Here is what Tiger Tales spies report: 

Things were a little dull until Jean 
James and Dona Reeves decided to 
wake things up around 2:30 a. m. 
Pie pans from the kitchen furnished 
their weapons. For her efforts, James 
was dunked under the shower. Later 
on several choral groups tried to out- 
sing each other until they ran out 
of lung power. 

Around three in the morning Miss 
Anne Hawley's alarm clock went off, 
and Barbara Head tried to answer the 
telephone. Breakfast was prepared by 
Barbara Head, since she was already 
up, Sandra Crow, Wilma Reece, and 
June Harris. 

Jean Lacquement and Dorothy 
Myers were in charge of the game 
equipment. Miss Anne Hawley, Miss 
Mary Wilson, Mrs. Florence Goforth, 
and Mrs. Paul Brown were chaperones. 

As is usually the case with this 
annual feminine binge, the party ap- 
parently got a little rough around the 
ping-pong table. No wounds have been 
discovered where they show, but an 
extra heavy net bracket had to be 
welded Monday before it could be re- 
turned to the clubroom, and someone 
had apparently bitten a chunk from 
the center of a ping-pong paddle. Since 
all girls reported in Monday, your 
TT reporter assumes that all the 
brawling was fiendishly friendly.

The school year is rapidly coming 
to a close with only seven days of 
classes left. 

Soon the sophomore class will be 
leaving htere to move up another 
rung in the ladder of education. The 
freshmen will also take another step, 
that vacated by our newly ordained 
alumni predecessors. 

The sophomores have left high 
standards of efficiency and character, 
which the remaining class will en- 
deavor to uphold during their reign 
on the throne as upper classmen. 

It has been a good year here, with 
much student support. Our football, 
basketball, tennis, track, and golf 
teams have showered many victories 
and much fame and college enter- 
tainment has been extensive with 
socials, Arkalalah, the Snow Ball, and 
the Tigerama. 

Our student council has tried to 
bring the kind of government that 
will please the entire student body. 
Our instructors should receive much 
credit for helping us obtain our edu- 

Farewell, sophomores. It's been 
nice to have you here the past year, 
to show the way. Good luck and good 
fortune to you in the future.

The Tiger Tales staff nominates 
today a candidate for the title of 
mest ardent college supporter. 

W. P. Welton, Burford manager, 
and one of the few business men in 
town whose net returns are likely to 
be lessened by a successful college 
ball club, had played host at the 
Star Theatre to the juco student bjdy 
during the 1953 and 1954 Victory 
Days. This year the Student Co-uneil 
again made arrangements for the 
student body to view a film this time 
a top musical comedy, and took over 
the Burford for the afternoon. Ex- 
penses «f "about 935 were to be 
paid by the Council. 

When Joe Prochaska and Morris 
Jarvis told Mr. Welton the sad story 
of the Council finances on the Victory 
Day picnic last week, the manager's 
response was immediate. 

"Keep the money," the man said, 
"and pay your other bills. The show 
is on me!" 
Like that man! 

Pre-enrollment Planned 

For Freihmen, H.S. Seniors 

Pre-enrollment for members of the 
senior high school graduating class 
who expect to attend junior college in 
1955-56 has been arranged by college 
faculty members, Dean K. R. Galle an- 
nounced this week. The day had not 
been selected at the time of writing. 

Seniors interested in the junior col- 
lege will attend a short orientation 
meeting at 1 p. m. on the day chosen, 
and then will be split into advisory 
groups according to the fields of inter- 
est. Faculty members will explain col- 
legiate requirements in the varied pro- 
fessional and traing fields, and assist 
prospective students in filling out 
individual pre-enrollment forms. Mrs. 
Florence Goforth will be in general 
charge of the advisory activities for 
senirs. Dean Galle said. 

College freshmen who expect to re- 
turn for the fall session will likewise 
be asked to prepare pre-enrollment. 
forms. Requests made by students in 
this manner play a large part in se- 
lection of college offerings, Galle said.

The mobile unit is financed by con- 
tributions to the Christmas Seal fund 
and has been in operation over the 
entire state. Students are urged, for 
their own benefit, to take advantage 
of the opportunity. There is no charge 
for the x-ray, and in addition to diag- 
nosing tuberculosis any signs of 
heart trouble, cancer or tumor can be

Physiology Class 
Bleeds 50 Students 
To Get Samples 

The college physiology class has 
done some extensive experimenting 
with human blood the past two weeks. 
Experiments have been carried out 
in blood counts, blood typing, and 
coagulation and hemoglobin tests. 
Almost 50 people have been tested, 
according to J. Kelsey Day instructor, 
and no ill effects were felt by any- 

Day estimated that in the last two 
weeks some students were tested as 
many as 25 times. The tests rhowed 
that rs far as blood types were con- 
cerned the college group proved to 
be average. 

Day said that the purpose of the 
tests was not to t^ach the students 
how to make the tests but rather that 
they could know how and why such 
tests'were given. Besides testing some 
15 class members, the group used 
some people from outside to conduct 

Out of the people te^t^d, two were 
found to have type AB blood, which 
is the rarest of the four major types.

Saturday is the big day as far 
college spring sports are concerned, 
with the State tennis, golf, and track 
meets at El Dorado. 

The Tiger netmen have the best 
chance to capture the state tennis 
title. So far this season they have won 
nine straight matches and have thirty- 
four consecutive victories. Ronnie 
Houdek and Jerry Waltrip will com- 
pete in the singles, while Bill Elrod 
and David Circle will play the doubles 
matches. The Arks are defending 

On the greens at El Dorado the 
Tiger golfers will also be trying for 
a state title. The team is composed of 
Poger Bowser, Berklie Perico, Rex 
Mrrsh, and Dale Evans. 

Three tracksters made their final 
appearence of the year at the Hutch- 
inson track meet May 6. Jim Sullivan, 
Doug Fritz, and Elmo Johnson were 
the only members of the juco track 
team to travel to Hutchinson for the 
relays. The tracksters will not par- 
ticipate in the state meet Saturday 
because they did not place high in the 
Hutch relays. 

Along with the wind and the dust 
the Tiger tennis team defeated the 
Hutchinson Blue Dragon team 4-2. 
Coach Raymond Judd said the dust 
was so bad that the players took 
showers between sets. 

Houdek whipped Nettlin, 6-3, 6-1; 
Circle took Brooks, 6-4. 7-5; Elrod 
downed Naszinger, 6-8, 6-4, 6-2; and 
Alley of Hutch beat Waltrip, 6-1, 6-2. 

Houdek-Circle, over Nettlin-Brooks, 
6-3, 6-1; and Alley-Naszinger of 
Hutch beat Elrod and Waltrip of A. C. 
6-2, 6-1. 

TRACKSTERS are, first row: Ed Koontz, Delbert Schmidt: Bill Wal- 
ker, Pat Ko^hler. Jim Sullivan; Second row: Mack Ch«atp. .To^n Pyle. 
T<»m Davis, Jack McCune, Doug Fritz; third row: Buddy England, Jerome 
Moore, Don Truby, Leslie Dixon, Merlin Burnette. 

St. John's Eagles To Play 

St. John's College, Winfiold. has 
been admitted to Kansas Public Jun- 
ior College athletic league, and will 
compete in the Fasten Division in 
basketball during the 1955-56 season, 

This change will not effect the 
Tigers, who play many other teams 
in the Eastern Division. St. John'* is 
the first private school to be admitted 
to the league membership. 


To Sell Early in June 

The carpentry class house will be 
sold at auction the first week after 
school is out, director of vocational

Tigers Topple 
Cards, 59-6, 
For Second Win 

The Tigers went on a touchdown 
parade against the Parsons Cardinals 
here Friday night September 16. The 
Cats scored nine times throughout 
the contest and added five extra 
points, to out-class the Cards 59 to 6. 

Halfback Jim Sullivan was the big 
gun for the Tigers along with half- 
back Jerry Smith. Sullivan scored 
three touchdowns, while Smith 
counted two. The most suprised per- 
son of the evening was Tony Tapia 
who was trailing a play, in which 
fijll Richey kept a hand off and 
headed toward pay dirt. When Richey 
was stopped short of his mark he lat- 
eraled the ball to Tapia, and the big 
190-pound tackle scampered all the 
way. Other TD's in the game were 
made by Nate Sanders, Curtis Adams, 
and Kent Venable. 

Berklie Perico kicked three extra 
points and Curtis Adams counted one. 
The final extra point came on a pass 
from Jack Greenwood to Tommy 

Parsons' lone touchdown came in 
the third period with Charles Moore 
counting the marker. Their try for 
point was no good, and it was the 
only time they had the opportunity 
to score. 

During the later half of the game 
the Tigers relied mostly on their 
reserves to maintain the lead and 
hold down the Cards. 

The contest was one of the hardest 
fought games in many years, even 
though the score board did not show 
it. There were a total of three players 
ejected from the game for unsports- 
manlike conduct. 

Last year the Arkats defeated the 
Cardinals 33-6. This is the first con 
ference win for the Tigers, who have 
seven more to go for the title. 

TAC Elects Gates

Tigers Face Broncs 
And Cameron Aggies 
In Next Outings 

The Tigers will face one conference 
foe and a non-conference opponent 
in their next two outings. Tomorrow 
night at Curry field the Bengals will 
meet the up-and-coming Garden City 
Bronc Busters, and the following Fri- 
day they travel to Lawton, Okla., to 
play the powerful Cameron Aggies. 

Last week the Broncs won their 
first conference game from the In- 
dependence Pirates, 26-6, putting Ark 
City, Garden City, and Coffeyville, 
who won over Pratt 46-6, in a three- 
way tie for the conference lead. In 
their last meeting the Tigers up- 
rooted the Broncs 28-0, at Garden 
City and went on to take second place 
in the conference with a 5-1-1 record, 
while Garden ended in fourth with a 
3-3-0 tally. 

Following the Tigers' clash with 
Garden City, they will trek to Lawton 
on Sept. 30 to play the rough and 
ready Cameron Aggies. Cameron has 
always in the past had a tough ball 
club, ranking high in national juco 
football. In their last game the Ag- 
gies stopped a Tiger winning streak 
with a 26-14 victory here at Curry 
field. The Tigers' game with Cameron 
will probably be their roughest of the 
season, with plenty of well-organized 
ball being played by both teams. 

The Bengals have nine more ball 
games ahead of them with seven con- 
ference tilts and two non-conference 
clashes, which should add up to hang- 
up football for all Tiger supporters

Appointments Announced

Bengals Blast 
Builders, 26-0, 
In Home Opener 

The Tigers captured their first vic- 
tory of the 1955 football season, Sep- 
tember 9, at Curry field by downing 
a game Southwestern "B" eleven 

The Bengal win was attributed to 
a fine rushing and ground attack, as 
well as excellent defensive play. 
Cats Scoreless the First Period 

Though the Tigers racked up many 
first downs and yards rushing they 
were unable to tally during the first 
quarter of play, but they held the 
Builders and allowed them no first 

The first Tiger touchdown came in 
the second period when Bill Richey 
passed 27 yards to Berklie Perico in 
the end zone. Perico then added the 
point after touchdown to put the 
Tigers in front, 7-0. 

Again in the second quarter the 
Arkats scored with Nate Sanders 
taking a hand-off from Richey and 
crashing 20 yards, off-tackle, to pay 
dirt. Perico's try for point was wide 
of its mark, and the Cats' lead jumped 
to 13 points. 

During the third quarter both teams 
were engaged in a see-saw battle 
with neither gaining the needed ad- 
vantage to score. 

In the final period the Tigers scored 
twice, the first was a pass interception 
by Jerry Smith, which he carried for 
50 yards for the third TD. Perico 
again added the extra point, giving 
the Tigers a 20-point lead. The final 
tally came in the fourth period when 
Curtis Adams took a hand-off and 
galloped 40 yards for the TD. Perico 
missed the extra point and the Tigers 
ended with a 26-0 win. 

Don Vannoy, last year's business 
administration major, is now attend- 
ing Wichita University.

Don't be alarmed if you happened 
to see a few Junior College students 
awkwardly going through the motions 
of skipping last week. It just hap- 
pened to be one of Miss Edith Davis' 
latest assignments in playground ac- 
tivities. No hard feelings kids, keep 
up the good work! 

What's this about Allan Maag's 
U. S. history class hoping for scorch- 
ing hot weather one particular Fri- 
day??? It seems as though they'd 
be given a test if the temperature 
dropped to a comfortable degree for 
taking a test. 

If you new students think you are 
seeing double when a cute little 
brunette walks by you in the hall, 
you're right, because they are the 
identical Strah twins. If you have 
trouble telling Charlotte from Char- 
lene, maybe Don Shanks can give you 
a few pointers! 

Attention all bookworms (and 
otherwise), in case you haven't 
noticed, there is a new $25 Webster 
dictionary in the office. 

Take note everyone. The new fresh- 
men reporter you'll be seeing around 
the halls is Donna Jones from Shaw- 
nee, Okla. Donna is majoring in sec- 
retarial training. 

Now is the time for all good Tigers 
to come to the aid of their annual.

Meet MlU Ga-ed Med 


Our Miss Co-ed this issue was born 
in Ark City on January 17, 1936. She 
moved away for a short period to the 
land of "you gotta show me", the 
State of Missouri, and returned last 
April. She is enrolled a a freshman. 

The gal was a graduate of Lexing- 
ton high school in 1955. When asked 
who her favorite singer was, male or 
female, she named Eddie Fisher. Food 
favorites are chicken, iced tea, and 
coke. Her pastime is flying. No major 
hobby enthralls her, but she likes to 
dance. One of her pet peeves is get- 
ting up in the morning. 

In case there is some doubt in the 
male mind just who Miss Co-ed is, she 
is Dorothy Haines, 5 feet, 5 inches tali 
with dark brown hair and brown eyes. 

In case you were wondering why 
Jim Sullivan was feverishly counting- 
steps to room 211 one morning last 
week, he was just fulfilling one of 
Coach Tommy Steigleder's psychology 

We introduce to you this week a 
man from Chilocco, 19 years old, five 
feet 11 inches tall with dark brown 
eyes and black hair. 

Albert Hood is a freshman and is 
majoring in business. His favorite 
drink comes under a grape list and he 
names fried chicken as a first in chow. 

Pastime? "Just loafing most of the 
time," "Buzz" Hood casually replies, 
although he does like to listen to pop- 
ular music. When asked his opinion of 
ACJC, he replies, "It's a pretty good 

Future plans are yet undecided but 
maybe the Navy will gain another 
man after he graduates.

Two new students enrolled in col- 
lege September 26, to increase the 
total enrollment to 347. They are 
Shirley Higbee from Maple City, and

igers uuei 
rone Busters 

To 13 13 Draw 

The Tigers played a hard-hitting, 
fast moving first half, only to end in 
a 13-13 deadlock with the Garden City 
Broncs at Curry field, Sept. 23. 

The Cats' ground attack seemed 
to be working well during the first 
half and they were able to move 
almost at will, while the Broncs relied 
mostly on aerial attack. 

Arkats Score Twice 

In the first two periods the Tigers 
counted twice. Jim Sullivan set up 
the first TD when he galloped 48 
yards to the Broncs' 18. Then Kent 
Venable carried for four, and Nate 
Sanders passed to Jerry Smith for 
the tally. Berklie Perico then added 
the extra point to give the Tiger a 7-0 
lead. Again in the first quarter Jerry 
Smith counted another touchdown, on 
a 70-yard dash. The try for point was 
no good, and the Tigers lead 13-0. In 
the second period neither team was 
able to score and the ball changed 
hands many times. 

Broncs Strike Back 

The Garden City eleven scored two 
times in the last half, the first com- 
ing after two long passes and a 20 
yard drive by Bishop. The kick was 
good, and the score read 13-7. In the 
fourth quarter the Busters got the 
tying touchdown and the extra point 
try was no good. In the final minutes 
both teams tried in vain to score. 


One out of seven Arkansas City 
Junior College students this year is 
attending school under provisions of 
the Korean GI Bill, Dean K. R. Galle 
has revealed. 

The fifty one veterans are Benny 
Alexander, Harold Allen, Bill Austen,

Tigers Stopped 
By Aggies 22-7 
For First Loss 

The Cameron Aggies gave the Ben- 
gals their first loss of the 1955 sea- 
son, Sept. 30, as they downed the 
Tigers 22-7, at Lawton, Okla. 

The Aggies scored three times dur- 
ing the first half and then were held 
scoreless until the final minutes of 
the game, when they counted a safety. 
The Arks' lone score came at the 
start of the third period when Jerry 
Smith picked off an Aggie pass and 
scampered 45 yards for the touch- 
down. Berklie Perico then completed 
the conversion to make the score 20-7. 

The touchdowns for Cameron were 
scored by Lloyd Rhumbaugh, Jim 
Combs, and Jim Pirtle. The safety 
was added when Bill Richey was 
tackled in the end zone, while trying 
to get off a kick. 

The Cameron Aggies were rated 
tenth in the nation prior to the game 
with the Tigers, and now have four 
wins for the season.

common foe, the Parsons Cards, and 
both gained victories, the Grizzlies 
doing so 40-14, while the Tigers rack- 
ed up a 59-6 win. In last year's game

Carpenters Plan 
Six-room House 

For New Project 

The main project of this year's 
carpentry class as for the past two 
years will be the construction of a 
six-room frame house, under the dir- 
ection of L. A. Chaplin, industrial arts 
instructor. Arkansas City carpenters 
Lave sgain approved the carpentry 
project by vote of the local carpenters 
union, C. L. Holman, vocational ed- 
ucation director, has announced. 

The A. C. Houston Lumber Com- 
pany bid for the lumber to be used in 
building of the project. 

A ranch house design emphasizing 
modern living has been chosen for 
use this year. It is a one story build- 
in? of 16,784 cubic feet, and covers 
872 square feet. It has three bed- 
rooms, a bath, kitchen, and living 
room-dinette combination, and is also 
built so that additional rooms may 
be added later or it may be set over 
a. basement. , 

Earl Stanley, retired Arkansas City 
businessman, has again donated use 
of his lot on the northwest corner of 
Fourth and Washington for the site 
of the 1956 project." 

The project was started on October 
3 and is due for completion in May. 
This year's practice will be the same 
as in the past. Upon completion ox the 
building, it will be auctioned off at a 
public sale. 

In the past school carpenters have 
built a garage, a four-room house 
which sold for $4,000, and last year a 
five-room house which brought $4,800. 

While waiting for the preparations 
of the house plans the carpentry class 
has been building ladders, saw horses, 
and dictionary stand for the study 
hall. Most of their time the past two 
weeks have been spent on building a 
stage set for the Arkalalah coronation 

This year's class members are Don- 
aVl Branch, Jim Estep, Kenneth Cza- 
plinski t Warren Wing, Nate Sanders, 
Jack Moyer, Wesley Locke, Ralph 
Palmer, and Jim Webb.

iss Kansas 

A bewildering array of experiences 
have greeted Gail White, Juco sopho- 
more, as she won the title of "Miss 
Kansas" and competed for "Miss 
America." While traveling to Atlantic 
City and during her stay there events 
to enthrall the memory of any girl 
parade through Gail's experiences. 
Last week she topped it off by re- 
presenting Arkansas City at the 
American Royal, and being named a 
lady-in-waiting to the Royal queen. 

At Chicago, their first stop, Gail 
and her mother, Mrs. Warden White, 
were dinner guests of the public re- 
lations representative of the Santa Fe 
Railroad, who presented Gail with a 
rhinestone handbag as a gift from the 
president of the railroad. 

Fifth of the queens to arrive at 
Atlantic City, Gail was escorted to 
the Hotel Chalfonte-Haddon Hall, 
where, with newsreels and still 
pictures being taken, she registered. 

Monday night the girls met and 
were briefed on the week's events to 
begin the week of activities. 

Tuesday, a show of the girls in 
bathing suits on the beach and taking 
of pictures highlighted the clay. The 
night program included the giant il- 
luminated parade watched by approxi- 
mately 200,000 people in a span of 
three and one half miles, with a $10 
tag on front row seats. In the parade 
the queens rode in new convertibles 
with the names of their states 
elevated on the back of the cars. 

"Wednesday night actual competi- 
tion began," Gail relates. "The candi- 
dates were divided into three groups, 
one to wear bathing suits, one to wear 
formals, and one group for the talent 
tests. The next three nights the girls 
alternated through these three groups. 
Wednesday night, too, Eddie Fisher 
was guest." 

Some of the judges who are fore- 
most in Gail's mind were John Whit- 
comb, associated with the Good 
Housekeeping magazine, Walter Cas- 
sell, an opera star, and Barbara 
Walker Hummel, Miss America of 

Bert Parks, master of ceremonies 
on "Break the Bank" and "Stop the 
Music", emceed all performances of 
the contest. 

Gail feels she has gained many 
friends, and her wonderful experiences 
will always be remembered.

Tigers Take 
Growl Out 
Of Grizzlies 

The Tigers won a crucial conference 
game from the El Dorado Grizzlies 
12-6, Oct. 14, at El Dorado. 

It was the third conference win for 
the Bengals, who faltered only in a 
tie with Garden City. The Cats must 
remain undefeated in third next five 
encounters to cop the loop crown. 
Scoreless First Quarter 

The first quarter was hard fought, 
with fine defensive play being dis- 
played by both clubs. It was not until 
the second period that tension 
mounted. The Grizzlies were the first 
to score on a keeper from 33 yards 
out, with their quarterback, Jack 
Scofield, carrying. Their try for point 
after the touchdown was no good, and 
the Tigers trailed by 6. The Ark's 
lone score in the first half came dur- 
ing the last few minutes of the half, 
when Bill Richey pitched out to Curtis 
Adams, who passed to Doug Fritz 
in the end zone. Berklie Perico's kick 
was wide, and the score was knotted 
at 6 all at half time. 

Adams Scores Winning TD 

Soon after the second half had got- 
ten under way the Arkats and the 
Grizzlies exchanged fumbles, with the 
Grizzlies gaining control of the ball. 
They moved to the 20-yard marker 
and their drive was stalled. With their 
pass and running offense stopped, the 
Grizzlies attempted a field goal which 
was no good. The final score of the 
game came when scat-back Adams 
broke loose and went all the way 
from the 15-yard line. Perico kick 
was again missed and the game ended 
the Tigers 12, Grizzlies 6.

Cats Face Red 
Ravens Tonight, 
Conquistadors Follow 

Tomorrow night at Curry field the 
Bengals will face the Coffeyville Red 
Ravens in a tough conference clash. 
Coffeyville thus far has had the breaks 
against them, dropping to Tonkawa 
by five points 8-3 and to El Dorado 
by two, 8-6. 

Last week the Ravens had a tough 
time beating the Independence Pirates 
7-0, but the Ravens are expected to 
be up for the Tiger game. The Red 
Ravens are last year's defending 
Kansas Junior College Champs, losing 
only one game, that to the Arks 7-6. 
The Tigers must win the C'ville game 
to stay in the running for this sea- 
son's title. 

Tigers Travel to Dodge City 

The following week the Cats will 
trek to cowboy country to play the 
Dodge City Conquistadors, who are 
still in the title picture, with only one 
league loss. Dodge City is always a 
rough opponent and the fact that the 
same wil be played at Dodge makes 
it that much more difficult. 

Should the Tigers win their games 
with Coffeyville and Dodge City, and 
should the Garden City Bronks drop 
a conference game, the Bengals would 
take first place in the conference 
standings, Even if Garden doesn't 
get knocked off the Tigers can still 
tie for the crown by booting Coffey- 
ville, Dodge City, Pratt, Independence, 
and Hutchinson. 

Charles Miller will be the modera- 
tor on a panel discussion to be held 
at the Rotary Club meeting on O'to- 
ber 24. The panel will discuss "Learn- 
ing To Live in a New Culture," and 
the panelists will be Nikhom Vor- 
asaph, Surasagdi Labmala, Kim Yung

Bengals Blast 
Tonkawa 6-0, 
For Third Win 

The Tigers gained sweet revenge 
for a skin-of-the-teeth defeat of last 
season by downing the Northern 
Oklahoma Junior College of Tonkawa, 
6-0, in a thriller at Curry field, Oct. 7. 

The highlight of the contest was 
the determined defensive play of the 
Bengal line, which repeatedly stopped 
the Maverick ground attack. 

Smith Passes & Sullivan Scores 

The only touchdown was scored dur- 
ing the last 20 seconds of the first 
half. After several unsucecessful at- 
tempts to score on the ground, quart- 
erback Bill Richey pitched out to 
Jerry Smith on the 20-yard marker, 
arid Smith zeroed in on Jim Sullivan 
standing on the goal line. Berklie 
Perico's try for point was wide, and 
the Tiger lead 6-0 at ho If time. 
Sanders Crashes Through 

In the third quarter Nate Sanders 
broke through the line and bulled past 
the Maverick secondary to the 15-yard 
line for a 45 yard gain, but the drive 
was ended by a fumble on the follow- 
ing play. 
Perico Kicks Out on Tonkawa One 

The crucial play in the fourth 
period was Perico's kick out-of-bounds 
on the Tonkawa one-yard line, which 
hindered the Mavericks desperation 
pass attempts. 

It was the Tigers' nineteenth meet- 
ing with the Mavericks' and their 
fourth victory over the boys from 
Oklahoma. The Mavericks thus far 
have won fourteen times over the 
Tigers, while one game ended in a

Annual Staff 
Works on Frosh, 
Chooses Cover 

A majority of the freshman pic- 
tures have been taken, but a few re- 
maining individual pictures are yet 
to be taken, and it is hoped that these 
may be completed as soon as possible, 
A. E. Maag, annual sponsor, said this 

Jorene Hoekenbury, editor, has an- 
nounced that the "Tiger" will be no 
larger than last year's and that it 
will contain approximately 60 pages. 
Covers will be ordered on December 1 
and the paper on December 15. Be- 
cause of this, the editor would like 
for those that have not bought their 
annuals to buy as soon as possible. The 
goal has been set for 300 annuals to 
be sold. 

"A very good cover has been de- 
signed again by Bill Walker and has 
been approved by the annual staff," 
Mr. Maag said. 

The cover has the picture of a 
tiger in the left hand corner, with 
the letters "The 1956" on the right 
hand side of the cover and the name 
"Tiger" running the width of the 
cover, with Arkansas City Junior Col- 
lege under the name "Tiger." The ar- 
rangement of colors has not yet been 
decided by the staff. 

Theresa Gaspar Is Elected 
Spanish Club President 

Theresa Gaspar was elected presi- 
dent of the junior college Spanish 
Club at its meeting, October 18, in 
the college clubroom. Heriberto Con- 
treras, a new student at the junior 
college from Juarez, Mexico, who is 
studying the English language, was 
elected vice-president. Other officers 
elected were Lodine Herr, student 
coil oil representative; Jerry Smith, 
secretary and Donna Jones, reporter. 

The club entertained two young 
guests, Leslynn and Phillips Moore. 
Henberto told of his home in Juarez 
and Spanish word games were played 
for the evening's entertainment. ' 


Christmas Party, 
Football Queen 
Trouble Council 

Student Council members, meeting 
today, had two important problems 
on their agenda, Phil Logan, council 
president indicated Monday. 

A request for a football queen gets 
top billing in the council, Logan said. 
The council is charged with the res- 
ponsibility for determining the ad- 
visability of such competition, the 
method of choice, and the time and 
nature of the coronation ceremony, 
under long time college practice. 

Daphne Dillard, social committee 
chairman, was expected to dump back 
to the council's lap the problems of 
finding a date for the annual Christ- 
mas Alumni party. Instructed earlier 
to select a date for the affair, the 
social committee has run into basket- 
ball games, Church night, vacation 
considerations, and band troubles. 
Should these problems not be solved 
soon, plans for the annual party 
might have to be cancelled, Logan 

Gail White, juco sophomore, was 
crowned Alalah XXIV at the annual 
Arkalalah coronation ceremonies, Oct- 
ober 28. 

Printers Guild To Organize 
After 9-Week Grades 

Printers' Guild will be organized 
after the nine week grades are out. 
The club will be composed of boys 
maintaining a "B" average in print- 
ing for two or more years. Members 
will be from both the junior college 
and high school classes. 

Charles Trenary, president, Buddy 
Kendrick, vice-president, and Young 
Snodgrass, secretary, were the officers 
last year and will guide the building 
of the 1956 program. 


Home from Wichita U for Arkala- 
lah, Bruce Bittle and Harold Spahr, 
1955 grads, visited juco classes Fri- 


Jack Defrees was the junior college 
Rotary guest October 24, and took the

Attention all boys! There's a brand

on your clubroom pool table, providing 
you help pay for it by peddling hot 
dogs at the games. Sound about like 
a winner? ? ? 


We don't mind you catching 20 
winks between classes on a clubroom 
sofa but please refrain from "sawing

dreams till some other time — then you 
won't be interupted! 

Old teachers never die, they just 
grade away. — Fort Hays State Col-

Life is a concatenation of circum- 
stances correlating continously. If you 
are doubting this broad statement, 
you probably forgot to stop with 
Madame Keefe, the palm reader at 
the Halloween party, October 17. All 
jokes aside, Marie did a swell job in 
her' little booth. 

A frustrated freshman hurrying 
through the halls met Dean K. R. 
Galle, and trying to be serious mind- 
ed, stammered, "Hello Mr. Dean!" 

In case you jello slinging Tigers 
were wondering how the clubroom 
ever got back to normal after the 
Halloween party, it wasn't easy es-

This "speedy chick" is never too 
busy to smile and say "Hi" as she 
runs through the hall to get to her 
next class. 

She stands 5 feet 4 S 4 inches tall, 
has brown hair and "happy" brown 
eyes. Her birthplace was Wichita, 17 
years ago. A member of the band and 
social committee and a typical "gone" 
freshman is our Miss Co-Ed. 

She lists as her pet peeve the nick- 
name "Schureid". If you haven't 
guessed by now, she is Shirley Reid. 

Shirley's favorite color is blue and 
she's all for chocolate of any kind, 
cherry pie, and fried chicken. French 
is her favorite subject, Dan Kahler 
rates as her ideal teacher, and bas- 
ketball as her favorite sport. 

Glen Miller's "Stardust" rates as 
Shirley's number one song, and she al- 
so thinks "Love is a Many Splendored 
Thing", by the Four Aces, is tops. Her 
pastune is playing the piano.

K. U. or Emporia State when she

him "Hutch." Who else is this fresh-

Among his list of favorites in food

his pet peeve as his "big awkward

mode of transportation. 

What would you do with a million 
dollars? Well, Laurel says he'd buy

European road races if he had a mil- 
lion dollars. 

On the serious side, Laurel wants 
to attend the Colorado School of 
Forestry, then work in the forestry 
service in Canada.

Ravens Score 
Twice to Stop 
Tigers, 14-3 

The Coffeyville Red Ravens handed 
the Tigers their first conference de- 
feat of the season, 14-3, at Curry 
field, Oct. 21. The win placed the 
Ravens in second place and dropped 
the Tigers into fourth. 

Coffeyville started slowiy during the 
first part of the game, not showing 
too much offensive power. The Ben- 
gals were able to move almost at will, 
but were handicapped by fumbles. 

The Cats' lone scoi*e came during 
the first half. The Tigers had moved 
the ball down to the 20, where their 
forward progress was stopped. Berklie 
Perico then kicked a 27-yard field 
goal to put the Tigers out in front, 

At the beginning of the second half 
the Arkats still had their 3-point lead. 
In the opening minutes of the period 
both teams seemed evenly matched. 
Late in the third quarter Coffeyville 
pushed across the first of two TD's. 
The Javatowners' score came after a 
series of drives through the middle 
and then around the ends. They added 
their extra point to lead 7-3. 

In the final quarter the Ravens iced 
the game when their fullback crashed 
over from the 6-yard line. The try 
for point was also good, and the Ra- 
vens won 14-3. 

Conqs Down 

its, 31-21 
Out West 

The Tigers, despite a second-half 
resurgence, received their second 
straight league loss from the Dodge 
City Conqs, 31-21, at the Cowboy 
Capital, Oct. 27. 

The Conqs dominated the entire 
first period, scoring four TD's to lead 
at half time 25-0. Most of the Conq's 
scoring was done by their quarter- 
hack, Jim Miller, who counted twice 
in the first quarter and again in the 
third period. The other two Conq 
scores were made by Larry Friend 
and Jim Bibcock. 

Tigers Roll in the Second Half 

After the half the Tigers started to 
roll, allowing the Conqs to score but 
one time the whole second half. Jerry 
Smith was the big 1 gun for the Ben- 
gals. Smith scored twice and passed 
once to Berklie Perico for the third 

Tigers Face 
3 More Foes 

Tonight the Tigers will face the 
Pratt Beavers in a conference clash 
at Curry field. 

The Beavers returned to the con- 
ference football after an absence of 
four years. The last time the Tigers 
and the Beavers met was in 1950. 
Thus far in the series of eight games 
that the two clubs have played the 
Cats have won five, lost none, and tied 
three times. In 1950 the Arkats tied 
the Beavers 6-6. 

The following week the Tigers will 
travel to Independence to play their 
final game away from home. Indepen- 
dence has steadily been getting 
stronger as the season progresses. 
The Pirates gave Coffeyville a tough 
fight two weeks ago, the Javatowners 
squeezing out a 7-0 victory. 

On Nov. 18 the Cats will close their 
1955 season against the Hutchinson 
Blue Dragons at Curry field. Hutch 
is the only club in the conference that 
uses the single-wing formation, which 
will bring a change in the Tigers' 
style of defense. Last year the Tigers 
had a chance at a tie for the confer- 
ence title with Coffeyville, but the 
Dragons plaved them to a 13-13 dead- 

The Bengals have had the breaks 
against them this season but should 
look good in their final three contests. 

If you think you're the only person 
suffering from a miserable head-cold 
here at school, just take a good look 
around you. It all goes to show, even 
teachers are sometimes human. 

If you happened to notice several 
students coming out of the office last 
week with a large smile on their 
faces and a check in their hands, 
you'll know they were the lucky 
scholarship holders for this year. 

Tiger score. 

The Tiger loss can be attributed to 
fumbles, which cost the Cats the ball 
eight times during the contest. Larry 
Friend, Conq halfback, also cost the 
Timers at least three touchdowns by 
catching Tiger backs after they had 
passed the secondary. 

The loss dropped the Tigers into 
fifth place behind the Garden City 
Broncs, who are leading: the league, 
and Coffeyville, El Dorado, and Dodge 
City, who are tied for second.

November 1 meeting was the plan for 
selection of a football queen. It was 
left to the team to nominate three 
girls of their choice, with the stu- 
dent body to vote in an election held 
on November 15. The queen will be 
crowned at half-time during the 
Hutchinson game. The election com-

Annual Messiah 
Is December l8 

Handel's "Messiah," annual Christ- 
mas presentation of the junior college 
and high school music departments, 
will be presented for the 23rd time, 
December 18, Kenneth Judd, choral 
music director, has disclosed. 

Students will be given a chance to 
show their talents in solo parts and 
Gail White, sophomore and Shirley 
Reid, freshman, have been chosen to 
be accompanists; Mr. Judd said. 

The Messiah has been presented 
annually since 1932, when it was first 
given under the direction of the late 
Archie San Romani and Charles L. 

Mr. Judd participated while a stu-

Seems like our junior college gals 
just aren't in style unless they lucky 
enough to sport a diamond on their

Donna Leigh Condit Is 
Bride of Francis Swanson 

Miss Donna L eigh Condit, Geuda 
Springs, and Francis Merle Swanson, 
college freshman, were united in mar- 
riage Nov. 3, at the Geuda Springs 
Methodist Church. The vows were 
read by the Rev. C. A. Choate at 
12:30 p. m. 

The couple is now at home at Geuda 
Springs following a short wedding 

Three former Tiger grid stalwarts 
who turned in creditable seasons for 
the Southwestern Builders this fall 
were Earl Grinnell, '50, J. C. Loudev- 
baek, '53; and Marcellus Duckett, '55. 

Our tall, lanky male specimen for 
this week's Mr. Ed is none other than 
Charles Floyd Porter. More commonly 
known cs "Charlie" has a favorite of 
all pastimes, women. Besides this ex- 
tra-curricular activity, Charlie thinks 
life would be just wonderful if he 
could have fried chicken every day of 
the week. This happy-go-lucky fello v 
lvr.s but one pet. peeve and that is the 
indention of grade cards. 

A graduate from East High School 
rt Wichita and a graduate-to be from 
JUCO this spring, Charlie lists as his 
cheif ambition in life as b^sk^tb^ll, 
basketball, and more basketball. He 
plans to fulfill this desire by going on 
to school somewhere "north, east, 
west, or south" of Arkansas City. 

Word is still coming in on the poise 
and graciousness of Queen Alalah's 
attendants during Arkalalah festi- 
vities. Daphne Dillard, Shirley Flick, 
Paula Craig and Sue Huffman were 
very charming in showing the public 
and Arkalalah officials every evidence 
of having a good time, in spite of the 
cold weather.

panied by their instructor, Paul M. 
Johnson, who will direct one or more 
discussion groups.

Tigers Down 
Beavers In 
Bitter Contest 

The Tigers up-rooted the Pratt 
Beavers in a bitter contest, 13-0, at 
Curry field, Nov. 2. It was the fifth 
victory of the season for the Bengals, 
who have lost only three contests. 
Pratt has only one win thus far this 
year and had never beaten the Cats 
in any previous meetings. 

Sanders Smashes Through 

Nate Sanders, Tiger fullback, 
counted the first of two Tiger touch- 
downs early in the first quarter. After 
a series of hard ground plays and an 
accurate air assault, the Bengals 
moved to the 6-yard line, where 
Sanders crashed off tackle for the 
tally. Berklie Perico's kick was wide, 
and the Cats maintained a C-0 half 
time lead. 

Richey Keeps and Goes 

It as not until the third period that 
the Bengals counted their second and 
final score of the game. The touch- 
down came following a sustained 
drive down to the 2-yard marker, 
from there Quarterback Bill Richey 
faked a hand off and plunged over. 
Perico's boot was true, and the game 
ended with the Tigers leading 13-0. 

"Snowball" theme for 
Christmas Ball, Dec. 22 

A crowd of 400 is expected for the 
annual Christmas-Alumni Ball, De- 
cember 22 in junior college auditorium. 

Assistance in the formation of a 
similar group in the high school, a 
new project for the year in the FTA 
Club, is now under way, announced 
Miss Mary Williams, sponsor, after 
the group's last meeting, Nov. 7. The 
following committee was elected by 
the group to help form an FTA 
Chapter in the Arkansas City high 
school: Marilyn Misak, Daphne Dil- 
lard, Gail White, Nancy Poore, Beverly 
Boswell, Allison Whittaker and Janice 

Fifteen members and three advisors 
were present at the meeting, and the 
hostess for next meeting, December 5 
in the juco study hall, will be Mrs. 
Misak and Mrs. Betty Sturgeon. 

Junior college sudents organized a 
bowling league at the Ark City Bowl- 
ing Lanes, November 7. Members of 
the league are Mr. and Mrs. Melvin 
Cates, Paula Craig. Bob Goodrich, 
Jack Greenwood, Lodine Herr, John 
Hilyard, Elaine Hockenbury, Eugene 
Huff, Sue Huffman, Mary Kahler, Gin- 
ger Krauch, Melvin Richeson, Bill 
Richiey, Phil Scott, and Jerry Smith. 

Three New Cage 
Rules Adopted 

Three changes were adopted by the 
NCAA to the basketball rules for the 
1955-56 season. These rules will be 
used by junior colleges as well as all 
the major colleges. 

Widening the free throw lane was 
the first rule accepted. It will be 
moved from six feet to twelve feet 
and will affect the big post men who 
have been able to tip in missed free 
shots. Also this rule will keep the 
space clear under the basket, due to 
the fact that a pivot man has still 
only three seconds in the 12-foot area 
as in the 6-foot lane of the past. 

A new dribbling rule has been set 
up to prevent stalling, and states that 
a player can dribble no more than 
five consecutive seconds while an op- 
posing player is within guarding dis- 

The final rule change has to do 
with when the clock starts on a jump 
ball. This season the clock will begin 
as soon as the ball leaves the referee's 
hand, not when it is touched by a 
player, as was done in the past. 

Bengals Host 
To Hutch In 
Final Game 

Tomorrow night the Tigers will 
clash with the Hutchinson Blue 
Dragons in their final grid contest of 
the 1955 season. The game will be 
played at Curry field and will start 
at 7:45 p.m. 

It is the Tiger's nineteenth meeting 
with the Dragons in a series thet 
extends back to 1929. The Bengals 
thus far have only five wins to the 
Dragons' thirteen victories. Last year 
the Cats had only to down Hutch to 
gain a tie for the Kansas Juco 
crown, but the Dragons deadlocked 
the game in a 13-13 tie. 

Hutchinson relies on a single-wing 
offense and the Tigers have been hard 
at work on a defense to stop their 
attack which will probably come from 
the air. 

An extra enjoyment has been plan- 
ned for Tiger fans, at half-time the 
Bengal gridmen will crown a football 

Sophomores, playing their final grid 
for the Orange and Black, are: Kent 
Venable, Jim Sullivan, Jerrv Smith, 
Gary Hunt, Phil Mitchell, Bill Rober- 
son, Gene McConnell, Berklie Perico, 
Dick Watson, Bill Richey, Doug Fritz, 
Nate Sanders, Melvin Cates, Gordon 
Fry, Jay Woodard, Tommy Davis, Jeff 
Walker, and John Hilyard. 

Bengals Tied 
20-20 in 

The Bengals were tied for the 
second time this season as they but- 
tled up hill to deadlock the Indepen- 
dence Pirates 20-all, at Independence, 
Nov. 11. 

Fumbles proved costly for the 
Tigers during the first quarter, as 
the Pirates counted three touchdowns, 
to lead 20-0 at the end of the quarter. 
Walter Ballanger was the big gun for 
the Bucs as he threw two TD passes, 
one to Carl Brown and the other to 
Roger Schoefeldt. Doug Patton raced 
over from the 20-yard line to give the 
Pirates their third and final score of 
the contest. 

Nate Sanders scored twice and set 
up the third Bengal touchdown when 
he recovered an Independence fumble 
late in the third period. Sanders TD's 
came from line smashes, one from 
8 yards out and the second from the 
2-yard marker. Jim Sullivan scored the 
other Tiger tally, when he dashed 53 
yards to pay dirt, following Sanders' 
recovery of the Pirate fumble. Berklio 
Perico completed two out of thrpe 
tires for point after the touchdowns. 

The statistics showed that Indepen- 
dence out-rushed the Bengals 237 
yards to 229 yards, while the Tigers 
passed for 123 yards to the Pirates' 
77 vards. 

Cagers To Hold 

boap bcrimmage 
With Mavericks 

The Tiger cagemen will trek to 
Tonkawa this afternoon to have a 
practice scrimmage with the Northern 
Oklahoma Junior College Mavericks. 
The entire squad of twenty-one will 
make the trip. Coach Dan Kahler said 
that the team will probably leave 
around 5 p. m. and the session is 
scheduled for 7 p. m. 

On Nov. 29, the Mavericks will come 
to Ark City for a return session. Ark 
City fans who wish to attend the prac- 
tice will be admitted on the receipt

size, which will be used by the team. 

Scouts from schools on the ACJC 
schedule are not invited to the fact

Spanish Club Plans 
Christmas Meeting 

While holding a meeting conducted 
in Spanish the Spanish club made 
plans for a Christmas meeting Decem-

President Theresa Caspar appointed 
Dixie Golden chairman of the social 
committee. Acting as secretary was

joined by the two guests, Joyce Clark 
and Ricatdo Zaragoza. 

9l Musidel .... 

Stop driving in that reckless man- 
ner! Don't put off those needed 
mechanical repairs! Make that car 
a thing of enjoyment, not an instru- 
ment for homicide. 

Why is it that teenage drivers are 
such risks to all the insurance comp- 
anies? Why does it cost twenty to 
thirty dollars more for individuals 
under 25 to get coverage? Because of 
the condition of the cars they drive 
and the lack of thought and judgment 
used in driving, say insurance men. 
It is a fact that people under 25 have 
superior reactions, yet they are easily 
distracted. That and lack of minor re- 
pairs, which make the cars unsafe for 
driving, are the real reasons. If all 
would correct these faults the high 
insurance rates would change from 
the younger ages to the elder.

Mad MiU Ga-ed 

Our Miss Co-ed for this issue is 
Shirley Higbee, a freshman who was 
the 1952 Maple City visiting' queen 
for Arkalalah. She was a high school 
sophomore when she attained the hon- 
or. Our Miss Co-ed is a good friend of 
Helen Glenn, the visiting queen from 
Maple City this year. 

Home is Maple City "natcherly," 
but she attended the Dexter high 
school, where she was graduate in 
1955 with a class of nine students, 
ii e of them girls, and four boys. 

Sh" said that there is a lot of "in 
and work attending a small town high 
school. In their freshman year her 
cl >.ss started working on different pro- 
jects to pay their senior trip. Along 
in the junior year they decide where to 
go, and as seniors whether thev would 
have enough monev to meet the ex- 
pense for a trip to New York City and 
Washington D. C. After making their 
financial goal they had the St. Louis 
Travel Bureau make the plans. On 
their trip to New York Citv they 
visited the Statue of Liberty, Empire 
State building, Times Square, a boat 

ride around Manhattan Island, and 
saw many other well-known land- 
marks. All Federal buildings, monu- 
ments, and the White House were just 
some of the sights seen while on 
tr.eir sightseeing trip through Wash- 
ington D. C. 

Some of her favor'ities are basket- 
I all, reading fiction, (such as Lloyd 
C. Douglas^, Dan Kahler is the tea- 
cher, fo d her sub'ect. She diesn't 
like to lie oiled "grandma." When 
ask about ACJC, she said that she 
likes the school, the friendly students 
and teachers, and that she has never 
been around where there were so 
many boys as are here. 


John Hilyard acted as master of 
ceremonies at the final pep assembly 
before the Hutchinson game. Jim 
Smith and Bill Austin refereed the

D E Club 

Is Active 
Student fc?roup 

One of the least known, but also 
one of the most active student organ- 
izations of the junior college is the 
Distributive Education Club. 

The main purpose of the D. E. Club 
ere learning the amenities of social 
life, development of projects in the 
business field, and studying problems 
of retail business, window display, 
interviewing, and sales demonstration. 
One of their projects is to produce a 
merchandise manual which, they ca'l

to the Parsons Cardinals, another 
eastern division team. The Cardinals 
also have a new head basketball coach, 
Gene Schickle, a former student at 
Parsons who went on to Pittsburg 
State and Wichita University. In the 
two contests the Cards and Cats 
played last year the Bengals captured 
both by comfortable margins. 

The Tigers will make their first 
road trip when they make the short 
jaunt to W infield, to play the St. Johns 
Eagles, on December 9. The Johnies

Cats Down 
Dragons, 27-12 
In Final Game 

The Hutchinson Blue Dragons were 
victims of the Tigers in their final 
win in the conference, 27-12, at Cur- 
ry field, Nov.lS, to close out the 1955 
season. The win placed the Tigers in 
a fourth place tie with El Dorado. 

The Cats' scored once in each quar- 
ter and had to come from behind a 
0-point margin in the first period. 
Scoring came on a pitchout, on a 
pass, on an intercepted lateral, and 
and on a blocked punt. 

Hutchinson scored first in first 
quarter of play. Ark City fumbled 
and the Dragons recovered on the 20, 
then went over from the 16-yard line. 
The try for extra point was no good 
and they lead 6-0. The Bengals then 
took the kick-off and advanced to the 
9-yard line, from where Jerry Smith 
took a pitchout and went over for the 
TD. Perico's boot was good and the 
Tigers had a 7-6 lead at the end of the 
first quarter. 

During the second quarter Hutch 
attempted a lateral and Curtis Adams 
canght the ball in mid-air and raced 
47 vards to pay dirt. Perico converted, 
and the Cats lead 14-6. After kick-off 
the Dragons came back to score their 
second and final TD for the evening. 
The conversion was missed and the 
half ended with the Bengals leading 

In the third period, Hutch had to 
punt, and Gordon Fry blocked the 
kick and fell on it in the end zone for 
a touchdown. 

The Tigers did not have enough 
scoring opportunities in the fourth, 
until the Blue Dragons fumbled and 
the Cats recovered with only seconds 
left in the game. Jack Greenwood was 
in at quarterback and he passed to 
Jerry Smith on a play that covered 
34 yards and crossed the goal as the 
gun went off. John Hilvard kicked for 
extra point, and the Tigers lead 27-

season the Bengals ended up with six 
wins, three losses, and two ties, while 
in the Kansas Junior College Con- 
ference they closed in a tie for fourth 
place with El Dorado. The greatest

Warning boys, the time is drawing 
near! Let's get on the ball now, and 
have cur white shirts all laundered 
and suits pressed for the big Christ- 
mas dance that'll come off one week 
fr: m today, Dec. 22, in the school aud- 
itorium lust before our vacation 
starts. And the most important thing 
guys, let's have a heart and give the 
lady of our choice at least a couple 
of days notice! This would be greatly 
appreciated, hum girls??? 



Not a helpful hint but just a re- 
minder: the simplest success story 
sometimes goes like this:

A mark that's fleet; 
We'll pass the test — 
Good old cheat sheet! 

That's right, don't let this spoil 
your Christmas spirit, but the final 
exams will he given around two weeks 
after the holidays. 

Suk Cho Chyung, brother of Joe 
Chyung, has arrived in the United 
States to do graduate study in fish- 
eries, and is currently working on his 
English at Redding College, Redding, 
Calif. Joe is uncertain when he may 
see his brother, but hopes that they 
may be able to attend the same school. 
Joe will be graduated at mid-term. 

Another juco freshman walking 
from class to class "on air" is Sharon 
Herd. She received her diamond on 
the eve of Dec. 9 from Glenn Jen- 
nings. Congratulations, kids! 

After adding the following traits 
of a few Junior College guys and 
dolls, the results are inevitable. Our 
"ideal Mr. Ed" would have: 

Ray Hernandez's dark hair, Doug 
Fritz's shy smile, Don Shanks' ro- 
mantic eye lashes, Dean Jackson's 
masculine build, Jerry Smith's clever 
walk, Bud Foster's drearry eyes, Jack 
Decrees' friendliness, Clifford Breed- 
en's sense of humor, Phil Logan's 
scholastic abilities, Robert Taylor's 
"bounce", and Jim Hill's talent. 

Likewise our "ideal Miss Co-ed" 
would have: 

Judy Batchelor's stylish hair cut, 
Marty Crowley's winning smile, Carol 
Tipton's "swooping" eye lashes, Kay 
Winegarnei \s smart "college girl" 
figure, Burchie Baber's dainty voice, 
Dixie Goulden's tricky walk, Jean 
Lacquement's big brown eyes, Lodine 
Hen's friendliness, Shirley Reid's 
sense of humor, Daphne Dillard's 
scholastic abilities, the Strah Twins' 
"bounce", and Gail White's talent.

No wonder the corn is shocked!

A sophomore in college, Phil Logan 
was graduated from Arkansas City 
elementary and high schools, and 
wishes to become a teacher after be 
is orr.duated from ACJC. Phil says 
he measures five feet, five inches, 
"on tip-toe," and is five foot eleven 
when he stretches. He claims to be a 
'"lousy" dancer because he "trips over 
the light fantastic." 

He has the usual interest in tennis, 
football and baseball when sports are 
being discussed. As far as likes and 
dislikes of classes go, sociology is 
a favorite and next Coach Tommy 
Steigieder's psychology classes rates 
high on his list. 

Do you have an unusual interest in 
blondes, or maybe you like sour 
lemons, or pink and gray Cadillacs ? 
Well Phil's unusual like isn't quite 
this unusual, but he does like rainy 
weather and with very much lightning 
and thunder. 

With no ulterior motives Phil in-

teachers who inspire me with their 
ability to pound knowledge into numb 
skulls like mine." 

When asked about his future plans,

cais, will be host at the annual 
Twelfth Night Party at the Osage 
Hotel for the other two college langu- 
age groups, the German and Spanish

A JfapsfLf /Veut l^ean, ? 

Well another calendar year is past 
and it is time for the proverbial 'New 
Year' 'resolutions,' but is it right to 
resolve things which that seem to 
vanish the latter part of January? 
People seem to have a knack for 
committing themselves to more pro- 
mises than it, is possible to keep. Why 
not for one year resolve on one or two 
things and carry through with them? 

Here in college there are many 
opportunities to find good things to 
improve on, such as school spirit, 
cooperation with teachers and organ- 
izations, which are here to help all in 
th< mending quest for both curricular 
and extra-curricular activities. 

If activities were to run smoothly 
and spirit were high, this would be a 
number one junior college. There 
would be no need for resolutions but 
for continued harmony. 

Let's make it a Happy New Year.

Alumni Power 
Halts Tiger 
Win Streak 

The former juco greats proved too 
much for the Bengals as they shot to 
a 81-69 victory over the previously 
unbeatable Tigers at the Aud-gym, 
Dec. 23. 

The Tigers were leading the power- 
house alumni going into the second 
half 38-33 but the sharpshooting 
alums were not to be denied as they 
scored 48 points to 31 for the Cats in 
the second half. 

Jim Sullivan was high for the 
Tigers with 16. Berklie Perico counted 
14, Bill Embry 10, and Charlie Porter 

Lafayette Norwood, a former juco 
all-american, took game scoring hon- 
ors as he counted 19 for the victorious 

Other Alumni who took part in the 
game were J. C. Louderback, Jim 
Reed, Ray Potter, Tony Rendulich, 
John Gaddis, Seymore Seitchick, John 
Ogren, Reece Bohannon, and Mylo 

In the first game the Tiger B team, 
lead by Jim Carter with 20-points, 
took the Alumni B's, 77-54. 

Bengals Blast 
Liberty Town Five 
By 81-63 Count 

The Tigers continued down victory 
avenue by knocking off the strong 
Independence Pirates, at Independence, 
81-63, in a match of Eastern and 
Western juco powers, Dec. 16. 

It was the best offensive effort put 
forth by the Tigers thus far, as they 
hit an even 50 per cent of their shots 
from the field and held the Pirates to 
only 38 per cent. 

Guards Bill Embry, Jim Sullivan, 
and Ray Hernandez were the big dif- 
ference for the Cats as the sharp 
shooters collected 15 of the 30 field 
goals scored by the Bengals. 

Sonny Maynard was again high for 
the Arks, as he counted 20-points from 
his forward position. 

The Pirates have been picked as the 
club to beat in the Eastern Division 
and last season they shared the title 
with the Coffeyville Red Ravens. If 
they continue at the pace which they 
snowed against the Tigers, they could 
win a lot of ball games and really give 
the Bengals a run for their money in 
their next meeting. 

Bengals Round-up 
Red Devils 89-59 

The Bengals rolled up victory No. 7 
as they downed the Iola Junior Col- 
lege Red Devils 89-59, at the Aud- 
gym, Tuesday night. 

The Tigers played their finest of- 
fensive game of the season as they 
collected 89-points in the win. The 
Bengals racked up a 21-point lead at 
half time, and then coasted to the 

Red Devil, Bud Routh took game 
scoring honors as he hit 8 field goals 
and 6 free throws for a 22-point to- 

Four Tigers broke the double scor- 
ing column. Charlie Porter lead the 
Bengal pack with 16, followed by Son- 
ny Maynard who counted 15, Bill Em- 
bry 14, and Berklie Perico 13. 

Tigers Trek West 
To Face Two Tough 
Conference Foes 

The Arkats face their toughest 
competition of the season in their next 
four contests. The bis test will come 
as the Bengals travel to Dodge City 
and Garden City to open the Western 
Division play, Jan. 13-14. 

Friday night the Tigers face the 
always strong Cameron Aggies, who 
twice up-rooted the Cats last season 
and accounted for two of the eight 
losses on the Bengal record. Cameron 
has practically the same ball club 
back this year and also some fine 
freshmen prospects. 

On Jan. 10. the Cats will meet the 
Independence Pirates, over whom they 
hold an early season win, but Inde- 
pendence is not a team that can be 
beaten easily and should give the 
Tigers a really tough game. 

The Tigers trek west on Jan. 13-14 
to meet two arch rivals, the Dodge 
City Conqs and the Garden City 
Brones. Both Dodge and Garden are 
favorites to take the Western Division 
crown this year. Dodge has their big 
gun in Clancy Waters, and most of 
the team who played last year's reg- 
ional tourney. Garden lost their star, 
Eddie Dater, but have replaced him 
with a fine array of freshman talent. 
which gives them one of the division's 
strongest fives. 

Cats Crush 

WU Frosh 

At Roundhouse 

The Bengals kept their unbeaten 
string of six wins intact with a 68-51 
win over the Wichita University 
freshmen at the new Wichita Uni- 
versity field house, Dec. 20. 

The Cats took an early lead in the 
contest and never fell behind. At the 
close of the first half the Arks lead 
36-22 and the yearlings only once 
came within eight points of the Tigers. 

Cy Rosdeitcher of Wichita took 
game scoring honors, hitting 10 field 
goals and 6 charity tosses for 26 

Tiger scoring was led by Berklie 
Perico, who racked up 21. points 
Other Bengals who broke the scoring 
column were Sullivan 10; Embry 9; 
Porter 10; Maynard 9; Smith 5; Her- 
nandez 3; and Shanks 2. 

In the main game at the Round- 
house the No. 1 team in the nation, 
the San Francisco Dons, beat the 
Wichita University Wheatschockers 
75-65, before a capacity crowd of 

Miss Joyce Clark, graduate of 1955 
and Queen Alalah XXIII, has an- 
nounced her engagement and forth- 
coming marriage to Manley Lewis, 
juco freshman. The wedding will take 
place January 20 in the First Metho- 
dist Church. 

Tigers Topple 
Tartars, 66-48, 
For Fourth Win 

The Tigers conquered a powerful 
Compton, California five, 66-48, in a 
fine defensive show, at the aud-gym, 
Dec. 14. 

Both clubs were unusually cold as 
far as hitting the basket during the 
first half, with the score a low, 27-11. 
During the second period the teams 
started hitting the loop, but the Tar- 
tars were able to pull only within six 
points of the fastmoving Cats. Late 
in the contest the Arks counted nine 
straight points to breeze to a comfort- 
able win. 

The big guns for the Bengals were 
Jim Sullivan, who counted for 20, and 
Sonny Maynard, who hit 18-points. 
Robitaillo was high for the Tarters 
with 14. 

It was the fourth straight victory 
for the Tigers, who open their West- 
ern Conference play January 13.

GOOdnight, Candidates for Prexy OSffcOydS 

Council Race 

With both candidates announcing 
platforms this week, and college halls 
plasteied with colorful banners, the 
annual campaign for the presidency 
of the junior college student council 
took on a new urgency this week., 
with balloting set for February 3. 

Verle Goodnight, freshman from 
Winfield, and Jack Anderson, first se- 
mester sophomore from Drumright, 
Okla., are the contending personalities, 
and thus the first non-Arkansas City 
student body leader since the 1940's 
is assured. 

Goodnight who is 19, was first to 
announce his candidacy. He was grad- 
uated from Winfield high school in 
1955, where he was active in forensic 
and dramatic activities throughout his 
high school career. He served as a 
cheerleader for the Vikings, and was 
a member of the Hi-Y club. A farm 
boy, his home is just north of Hack- 
ney. Business administration is Verle's 
collegiate field. David McGlasson is his 
campaign manager. 

Anderson was graduated from Ham- 
ilton, Kans, high school in 1954, where 
he played basketball, was class pres- 
ident for three years, and a student 
council member for three years. He 
attended Emporia State last year, and 
is 20 years old. Jim Carter is serving 
as his campaign manager. 

Opportunity to meet and hear the 
opposing candidates will be offered the 
student body February 1, when each 
will be introduced in a special election 
assembly and allowed to present his 
plea for votes, Wes Jordan, election 
committee chairman, has announced. 

Dick Riekel, 1954 has returned 
to the campus at Pittsburg after six 
weeks spent as a practice teacher at 
Arkansas City high school. Riekel 
chose the block method of preparing 
for teaching, spending six weeks on 
campus, the practice teaching period 
here, and the final six weeks on cam- 
pus. He will be a candidate for gradu- 
rtion at KSTC at the end of the 
summer term.

Four Jucos Complete 
Requirements for Graduation 

Arkansas City Junior College 
boasted its first foreign graduates this 
week as Bob Kim and Joe Chyung 
finished requirements for their diplo- 
mas and departed for advanced study 
elsewhere. Kim has been awarded a 
residence hall scholarship at the 
University of Kansas and Chyung will 
enroll at the University of Missouri. 

Two other students completed grad- 
uation requirements last Friday. They 
are Barbara Belew, who was married 
to Aubrey Foster, Jr., Saturday night, 
and George Slaven. 

Lawrence Hansen, Auto 
Mechanics Instructor, 
Goes to Work for Ford 

Lawrence H. Hansen, auto mechan- 
ics instructor, has resigned, effective 
January 23, to join the Ford Division 
of the Ford Motor Co., at Oklahoma 
City, as a service supervisor, after 
two and one-half years as a college 
faculty member. He established the 
auto mechanics department in the fall 
of 1953. 

"I surely hate to leave Arkansas 
City," Mr. Hansen said, "for we've 
never made more friends than we have 
here. A fifty per cent raise to start, 
with prospects for considerable 
advance, just can't be turned down by 
a family man." 

Hansen's successor had not been 
named as Tiger Tales went to press, 
and auto mechanics' classes were at 
least temporarily suspended. 

A Wurlitzer organ, the gift of the 
Harry Oldroyd family, is being instal- 
led in the junior college assembly 
room. The gift honors the late Harry 
Oldroyd, for nearly half a century an 
Arkansas City business man, civic 
leader, and a former mayor. 

Plans are under way for a dedica- 
tory service, at which Mrs. Bess 
Oldroyd will make the official presen- 
tation of the gift honoring her late 
husband. Negotiations are under way 
to secure an outstanding organist to 
play the dedicatory program. 

The gift was accepted officially by 
the Board of Education at its January 
meeting, and a decision made to offer 
organ lessons for junior college credit. 
Already several applications, some 
from junior college graduates who 
have continued their music careers 
after junior college graduation, have 
been received for the position of organ 

The Oldroyd family has been closely 
associated with Arkansas City schools. 
Dr. Carl R. Oldroyd, a psychology 
professor at the University of Okla- 
homa, a son of Mr. and Mrs. Oldroyd, 
was graduated from the junior college 
in 1933, and a daughter, Mrs. Dorothy 
Oldroyd Lampert, wife of a Beloit, 
Kan., banker, was graduated in 1935. 
Mrs. Oldroyd herself has been a part- 
time student at the junior college at 
various times for many years. Miss 
Roxanna Oldroyd, a sister of the man 
to be honored, was at one time a 
member of the Board of Education. 

"It is very unusual for a public 
junior college to be the recipient of 
such a gift," Dean K. R. Galle said of 
the presentation, "and we are very 
happy to receive it and proud that we 
have been selected. It is the wish of 
the Oldroyd family that the organ be 
put to active use, and we believe we 
shall have ample use for it."

Action Club. She succeeds Barbara

Mrs. Jim McCormick, the former 
Rosalee Jones, graduate of 1947 and 
the second editor of the Tiger Tales 
for three semesters, gave birth to a 
son over the Christmas holidays. Jim 
was graduated from ACJC in 1948, 
and they are now making their home 
in Chicago. 

Miss Joyce Clark, graduate of 1955 
and Queen Alalah XXIII, was married 
Jan. 20 to Manley Lewis, juco fresh- 
man. The wedding was held in the 
First Methodist Church. 

Betty Lamb, sophomore, came back 
to school Jan. 6 wearing a proud smile 
on her face and a ring on her left 
hand. Betty is engaged to Lynn Scott,

Marriage Prediction Scale 
Reveals Eligible Juco Bachelors 

"How good a prospective mate are 
you?" "How long have you held your 
job?" "How much do you have 
saved?" These are just a few of the 
questions brought up in Paul John- 
son's sociology class lately. 

According to averages compiled 
from scores on the Burgess- Cottrell 
marriage prediction scale completed 
by 24 sociology students, Arkansas 
City Junior College women rate as 
ever so slightly better prospects for 
marriage than their male classmates. 

Students were asked to interview 
five persons of the opposite sex and 
perform the following experiment. 
The "prospective husband" for exam- 
ple, marks his score on each item, 
such as "his degree of education," 
"family background," or "religious 
activity," and adds these figures to- 
gether. After the "prospective wife" 
has done the same, the couple together 
should answer the questions for 
"Items Common to Husband and 

Wife." Adding the score of husband, 
\\ il'e, and items common to both, will 
give the "marriage prediction score." 

If this score is above 700, there is 
a 98 per cent chance that the couple 
will be happy. If between 540 and 700, 
(here is a probability of above average 
in happiness. If it is below 300, 
chances for unhappiness are high. 

Six women students averaged 499 
points, or enough to promise fair suc- 
cess in marriage with the thirty 
prospects they interviewed. Eighteen 
men found their average to be less 
than a point lower than that for 
women, at 498.27. 

Leading "candidate" among the 
women was Paula Craig, with a 535-

Cildhouse met a partner with whom 

he racked up 610 points. Charley 
Miller, however, was far ahead of the

Is Crowned 12th Night Queen; 

Larryl Hutchins Her Consort 

Janice Hendrich and Larryl Hutch- 
ins reigned over festivities as the 
French Club acted as host at the an- 
nual Twelth Night dinner held by the 
language clubs in the Cadet Room at 
the Osage Hotel, January 7, at 6:30. 
Miss Anne Hawley is the sponsor of 
the language clubs. 

The iii vocation was given in French 
by Mrs. Clifford Barnes. Liz Bannis- 
ter told of the Twelfth Night celebra- 
tion in various countries. Before the 
meal was served, members of the 
group read proverbs and translated 
them into their respective laguages. 
Also the group engaged in group 
singing, with each language club sing- 
ing in its own language. 

Coronation of the king and queen 
was the main event of the evening. 
As in a custom of the French people 
on the Twelfth Night, a cake, con- 
taining a bean, is served as dessert, 
and the person finding the bean cho- 
oses his Icing or queen and then 
"reigns" for the remainder of the 

Queen Janice, a member of the Ger- 
man Club, received the piece of cake 
containing the bean, and she in turn 
chose Hutchins of the French Club, 
as her king. Clifford Breeden, as the 
host president, was in charge of the 
coronation, and placed gold crowns on 
the heads of the royal persons. The 
crowns were made by Phil Logan and 
Dona Jones. 

Following the coronation a program 
included a solo, "Der Rosenkranz," 
sung by Libby Giles, accompanied by 
Miss Eva Jeannete Boger, member of 
the French class. 

A piano duet, "Christmas Overture," 
was played by Shirley Reid and Miss 
Boger, both French students. A trio 
composed of Phil Logan, Max Gragert, 
and Clifford Breeden, sang "I See the 
Moon" and "Sweet Adeline" in 

James Hill, member of the German 
Club, played the piano solo, "Kinder- 
scencn," by Schumann. 

A "melodrama" in French was giv- 
en by Mrs. Jim Kincaid, Ham U Jin, 
and Phillip Logan, and a vocal duet, 
"Stille Nacht," was sung by Kay and Libby Giles, both 
German students. Shirley Reid ac- 
companied them. 

Mrs. Bob Crowley sang "Cantique 
pour Noel", accompanied by Howard 
Park. Mrs. Crowley is a member of 
the French Club. Clifford Breeden, 
French Club president, then presented 

a modern dance number to "Tweedle- 

Special guests for the evening in- 
cluded Dr. and Mrs. Jerry J. Vineyard, 
Dean and Mrs. K. R. Galle, Miss Mary 
Wilson, Miss Henrietta Courtright, 
Gustave Marter, Bob Crowley, How- 
ard Parks, Lenora Fuqua, and Mar- 
garet Schnelle. 

Tigers Get Revenge 
For 1955 Defeats 

The Bengals played control ball 
during the last five minutes of the 
contest to gain a 70-62 victory over 
the potent Cameron Aggies of Lawton, 
Okla." , at the Aud-gym, Jan. 6. 

The Aggies took an early lead and 
continued it to half time, when they 
were out front 37-33. The second half 
yaw the Tigers rally, and with five 
minutes remaining they gained a five- 
point margin. 

Bill Embry was high for the Tigers 
as he counted six field goals and ten 
free throws for 22 points. Big Charlie 
Elswick turned in his finest perfor- 
mance of the season as he counted 15 
points and captured 16 rebounds.

Juco Grad Relates 
European Tour Experience 

Miss Avis Mclrvin, a 1951 ACJC 
graduate and later of the University 
of Kansas and Wichita University, 
tells many interesting features of her 
hostel tour of Europe in a recent is- 
sue of Teachers Notebook, Hutchinson 
city teachers publication. 

Miss Mclrvin, who has taught the 
past two years at Olathe Junior High, 
spent three weeks in England, two 
and one-half weeks in France, one 
week in Luxembourg, eight days in 
Germany, four days in Holland, and 
three days in Belgium, touring by bi- 

Miss Mclrvin's most lasting impres- 
sion is the memory of the neat 
English countryside, with its thatched- 
roofed houses and flower gardens. 
She was fascinated by the friendly, 
polite British people, who know how 
to relax and enjoy themselves and yet 
keep a strong nationalism, and their 
great love for tradition. 

State and Local 
Government Course

Juco Rating 

The Tigers have stepped into the 
limelight in the National Juco Cage 
poll as they, for the second straight 
week, attained the No. 1 junior college 
basketball rating. 

The Bengals had a perfect record 
up to the Independence game on Dec. 
10, but ran into a bad night as the 
Pirates picked up a 62-56 victory over 
the previously unbeatable Cats. On 
the western trip the Arkats regained 
their prestige as they captured wins 
over Dodge City and Garden City, 
from whom they had never won both 
games on the western trek. 

Hannibal-LaGrange took the seeond 
spot in the poll, with the squad which 
last season placed second in the Na- 
tional tournament and downed the Ti- 
gers in the semi-finals. The National 
Championship team from Moberly Mo. 
dropped from third place in the last 
poll to fifth in the recent rankings. 

The ratings are derived from votes 
of the coaches, and are compiled at 
the NJCAA bureau at Compton, Calif. 

Top five juco teams in the nation 
and their records: 

1. Arkansas City 10-1 

2. Hannibal, Mo. 9-1 

3. Vincennes, Ind. 14-0

Tiger Power 
Too Much For 

Third Thai Student 
Enrolls at Junior College 

Paisan Bulphuk, 22, a freshman 
from Bangkok, Thialand, has enrolled 
as a freshman for the second semester, 
thus increasing the Thai contingent at 
the junior college from two to three at 
the time the three-man Korean group 
fell to one, with the graduation last 
week of Bob Kim and Joe Chyung. 

Bulphuk attended Keystone Junior 
College, La Plume, Pa., last year and 
during the first semester. His guardian 
during his stay in the United States 
is the Royal Tai Embassy in Wash- 
ington, D. C. He is living with Nikhom 
Vorasaph at 115 North Third. 

Tigers Topple 
Beavers 69-60, 
To Lead League 

The Bengals racked up their fourth 
straight Western Division victory as 
they downed the Pratt Beavers 69-60 
at the aud-gym Tuesday evening. 

It was a very unimpressive win for 
the Arks, as they seemed unable to 
get the lid off the basket, and counted 
only five field goals during the first 
half, to lead 27-26. It was an inspired 
Tiger five that took the floor the 
second period, and though they were 
unable to hit at will, they managed 
to play a control style of bail and out- 
rebound the Beavers. 

Jim Sullivan took game scoring 
honors as he counted seven field goals 
and seven free throws for 21 points. 
Larry Greenstreet was high for the 
Beavers with 19 points.

"y w -* kdx\6 Coach, Resigns 

The Arkats gained what seemed 
their toughest triumph of the season 
as they downed the Hutchinson Blue 
Dragons 88-78, in a see-saw battle at 
the Aud-gym, Jan 20. 

The lead was traded back and forth 
throughout the entire first half, with 
the Dragons gaining a 43-37 advan- 
tage at half time. 

The Bengals bounced back after the 
half time and within a minute and ten 
seconds lead 44-43. It was the Tigers 
all the way after they once regained 
the lead. They maintained a four to 
five point margin until the last few 
minutes, when it stretched to 10- 

Sonny Maynard was high for the 
Arid with 23 points, and Dick Biiller 

Tommy Steigleder, head coach of 
football and assistant basketball coach 
for the last two seasons, has resigned, 
effective at the end of the academic 

Steigleder will become athletic dir- 
ector and head coach of all sports at 
Robart, Okla., in the same athletic 
league in which he was coaching when 
he came to Arkansas City in the

the position as Tiger Tales went to

Bengals Blast 
Conqs, Broncs 
On Trip West 

The Tigers gained their first twin 
victories in their western trek as they 
downed two of the strongest confer- 
ence powers, Dodge City, 87-61, and 
Garden City, 82-78, on Jan. 13-14. 

At Dodge City the Bengals com- 
pletely out-classed the confident Conqs 
as they put on a fine defensive show 
as well as playing one of their best 
offensive games. Sonny Maynard, 
Tiger post-man, took game scoring 
honors as he counted 11 fielders and 
1 charity toss for a 23-point total. 
Clancy Waters was high for the Con- 
quistadors with 22 points. Jim Sullivan 
was also among the game's high 
scorers, as he hit for 20 points. 

On Saturday night the Cats moved 
to Garden City to dump the deter- 
mined Bronc Busters in a thrilling 
contest, 82-78. It was a nip-and-tuck 
contest all the way with the scoring 
being tied several times during the 

Sonny Maynard again took game 
honors with 21, and was closely 
followed by Bill Embry, with 18; 
Charlie Porter, 16; and Jim Sullivan, 
with 15 points. 

Adelhardt was high for the Broncs 
with 15, while their sharpshootinu; 
guards. Burrows and Keady, counted 
12 and 10 points respectively. 


24th of Jan. 
Deai 1 Friends: 

It is time to leave for Lawrence 
after finishing my studies in Arkansas 
< ity. Since I came over here, I have 
been studying the engineering course 
here, and will study the industrial 
management course in K. U. 

At this moment I am feeling very 
sad because I hate to leave Arkansas 
City. Arkansas City has become my 
home town in the United States. 
Everybody was so nice to me and I 
like them very much too. I won't 
forget you in all my life. 

After finishing my college education 
in the United States I would like to 
go back to my country and work with 
my father. I hope that with a good 
college education in the U. S. I can 
in some small way help my country 
to rebuild and survive the turmoil 
which it has been and is experiencing. 

I want to thank you people who 
were so nice to me and helped me in 
many ways. 

Good bye,

No. 10 

Jack Anderson 
To Head 
Student Council 

With a very slim margin of only 
eight votes Jack C. Anderson was 
elected to the post of Student Council 
President last Friday. Sylvia Bays, 
chairman of the election committee, 
reported that the final count was 98 
to 90. Nate Sanders represented the 
winning candidate during the count, 
while David McGlasson represented 

Jack was inaugurated February 8, 
with predecessor, Phil Logan, in the 
chair. Charlotte Strah, council secre- 
tary administered the oath in assem- 
i ly. In his inaugural speech Jack 
thanked the student body for the trust 
they had placed in him and again 
pledged his utmost to the betterment 
of the school. This is the first time 
since 1933 when Tom McConwell of 
Wetmore, Kans., was elected, that a 
non-Arkansas City student has held 
the office and it is believed to be the 
first time in the history of the school 
that an out-of-stater has been elected 
to serve as head of the council. Even 
though Jack claims Oklahoma as his 
i->orre state, he was graduated from 
Hamilton, Kansas, High School in 
1954. There he served as class presi- 
dent for three years, student council 
member for three years and was ac- 
tive in the basketball program. He 
attended Emporia State last year, and 
has just this semester become eligible 
for the Tiger basketball team. This el- 
igibility is due to rules of the NJCAA 
pertaining to students who transfer. 

Max Gragert, freshman, was at the 
console of the new college organ dur- 
ing inaugural ceremonies. 

The election brought out 190 voters, 
which i'-- a good strong 65 percent of 
the student bodv now enrolled in the 
r-Hege, with only two of the ballots 
having: to be thrown out. 

Those serving on the election com- 
mittee were Sylvia Bays as chairman, 
Bessie Czaplinski, Ruby McNutt, Dar- 
lene R^untree, Betty Derr, and Lois 

Class of 1956 Files 
Graduate Information 

Information on the 1956 graduating 
class has been gathered by a survey 
made by the faculty members during 
the past two weeks. 

Information gathered includes the 
graduating students' plans for the fu- 
ture, whether planning to attend a 
higher college or university, or enter- 
ing some other type of training or 
seeking employment, and their choice 
of a college or university or other 
type of training. If already employed 
for the next year they were to state 
where. If they were seeking employ- 
ment they were to state their 
cond and third choices as to type. 

Purposes of the survey were to get 
information for the representatives 
from senior colleges; to assist in ad- 
vising students of the choice of senior 
college; and to complete Junior Col- 
lege personnel records, preparatory to 
assisting graduates in getting employ- 
ment or maintaing graduate-college 

Gail White to 
Hollywood for 
Screen Test 

Gail White, ACJC sophomore, will 
go to Hollywood sometime within the 
next 30 to 60 days, to take a screen 

The opportunity for the test came 
as a surprise to Gail, who is Miss 
Kansas of 1955, after she was a eruest 
on a TV program over KEDD on 
February 1. She was appearing in 
connection with the world premier 
of "The Peacemaker", in Wichita. 

Hollywood producer Hal R. Make- 
lim, attending the premier, announced 
that Gail would be given a screen 
test. He had much praise for her 
beauty and photogenic qualities. 

Gail, a very happy and thrilled 
individual, stated afterwards, "I told 
them immediately that I have never 
had dramatic experience," but added, 
"I am thrilled at the opportunity. I 
went as guest of the theater manage- 
ment in Wichita, never dreaming 
that this would happen to me." 

Oldroyd Organ 
Is Dedicated at 
Juco Assembly 

Arkansas City Junior College re- 
ceived one of the largest beneficences 
in its history, February 1, at a dedica- 
tory service in honor of the late 
businessman and civic leader, Harry 
Oldroyd. The gift, a Wurlitzer organ, 
was presented in behalf of the Oldroyd 
family by Donald Hickman, local at- 
torney, who spoke briefly of the life 
and achievements of the man being 
honored. The organ was accepted by 
Dr. Jerry J. Vineyard, superintendent 
of schools. 

In what was the initial public reci- 
tal on the Oldroyd organ, Mrs. Fostine 
Fox Moncrief and Gail White played 
an organ and piano duet. Mrs. Mon- 
crief then played two other organ 
selections. In conclusion, the college 
choir, under the direction of Kenneth 
Judd, sang two numbers accompanied 
by organ and piano. 

AfJC students, faculty members, 
and townspeople were in attendence 
at the ceremony. Members of the 
family present were Mrs. Bess Old- 
royd, the wife of Harry Oldroyd; Dr. 
Carl R. Oldroyd, his son; and Miss 
Roxana Oldroyd, his sister. 

A coincidental sidelight was the fact 
that many of those connected with the 
proceedings were former ACJC stu- 
dents. Mrs. Bess Oldroyd was a part- 
time student throughout the years. 
Dr. Carl R. Oldroyd a 1933 grad Mrs. 
Dorothy Oldrovd Lampert a 1935 grad, 
Mr. Judd a *1940 grad, and Mrs.

Save Tiger Tales from 
Temporary Extinction 

At the beginning of this semester 
things looked pretty dark for the con-

a bit of recruiting the Tiger will 
growl again. 

Charles Trenary and Charles Miller, 
members of the staff, were determined 
the Tiger Tales wouldn't die, so with 
fast talking, threats, and promises 
they brought together a new staff. 

Under the guidance of P. M. John- 
son, instructor, members of the staff 
are Lois Marshall, Maxine Hynd, 
( harles Trenary, Evelyn Henderson, 
Charles Miller, Phil Logan, Cecil Bau-

students a good Tiger Tales with news

March of Dimes 

The sum of $25.53 was collected in 
morning classes, Feb. 1, for the March 
dt Dimes. . . 







As of Feb. 3, 285 students had com- 
pleted enrollment in junior college 
classes for the second semester, an 
unofficial count of enrollment cards 
disclosed Friday. Cards being finally 
processed were not included, and total 
registration may soon reach 300. 

The February enrollment markes an 
increase over February, 1954, and may 
reflect a slight decrease over February 
1955, when an unusual number of new 
students brought the registration to 
300. Spring term enrollments are usu- 
ally smaller than fall term. Registra- 
tions numbered 351 during the fall of 
195 r >. 

Of the 285 students enrolled, 166 
are freshmen, including 126 men and 
40 women; 100 are sophomores, in- 
cluding 84 men and 16 women; 19 are 
specials, including 12 men and 7 \vo-

from cards completed and on file as 
of Feb. 3. It does not account for

Candidates Present Pleas 
In Election Assembly 

In a special assembly held Thursday, 
February 2, at 9:58 a. m., the two 
candidates who had filed for Student 
Council President, Jack C. Anderson 
and Verle L. Goodnight, were intro- 
duced, shook hands and gave a brief 
summary of their ideas, promises and 
personal views toward the working of 
the student council. 

The two candidates gave their plat- 
forms in brief talks. Both candidates 
during their speeches brought out that 
neither could do anything without the 
backing of the entire student body and 
both asked not only for the vote of the 
students but likewise their support, 
if and when they were elected. 

It was the plea of the moderator as 
well as both candidates that the entire 
student body get behind this election 
and perform their democratic right 
and duty of voting. 

That same day at 12:15 p.m. the two 
students were introduced to the en- 
tire listening audience of radio sta- 
tion KSOK while they were being 
interviewed by Arch Gibson. At this 
time they both presented the prime 
planks of the respective platforms and 
again asked the entire student body to

Cameron Aggies Deal 
Bengals Loss No. 2 

The Tigers went down to their sec- 
ond defeat of the season, 72-68, before 
the Cameron Aggies, Monday night, 
as the Oklahomans gained revenge for 
an earlier loss to the Bengals. The 
game was played at Lawton. 

It was a bad night for AC, in that 
the team made some bad offensive 
mistakes that hurt them. The Arks 
lead most of the game and had a 
four-point lead at the half, but they 
were not controlling the ball the way 
they can and have done this year. 

Coach Dan Kahler was of the opin- 
ion that Cameron played a poorer 
game there than they did here, but 
the Cats could not get up a good head 
of steam and so wont down. 

High point man for the Orange and 
Black was Charles Porter with 24 
points, who continued his current 
"hot" streak. 

"The Power of Printing in the 
World" is the central theme of the 
seventh annual blotter design contest, 
open to all junior high, senior high, 
and junior college printers, sponsored 
by the Educational Printers' Guild. 

February 23 marks the closing date 
of the contest after which the blotters 
will be judged by three commercial 

Cash prizes will be awarded for 
first, second, and third places, with 
certificates of award for those receiv- 
ing honorable mention. 

Each blotter entered is accompanied 
by a twenty-five cent entrance fee to 
pay for the cost of the blotters and 

First and second prizes were won 
by juco printers last year. 

Arks Complete First 
Round of Play by 
Win over Grizzlies 

The growl went out of the Grizzlies 
as the Tigers won their thirteenth 
game against one loss. Final score 
was 73-58. The game was played on 
the El Dorado court, Jan. 27. 

El Dorado battled A. C. on even 
terms during the first half of the 
Western Division basketball game, 
but the Tigers roared back in the 
second half to notch the win, and 
remain unbeaten through the first 
round of western play. 

Coach Dan Kahler's squadmen now 
have a 5-0 record in the Western 
Division. This is the second time that 
the Tigers have gone through the first 
round without a loss during: Kahler's 

High point man for the game was 
Porter, with 19 points. He was also 
top re'^ounder, with 16 rebounds.

The Tigers got off to a very slow

the second half and come out 23 points

The big orange and black Tigers

Haven's home court. 

ACJC was behind most of the first 
half, as much as 11 points. The Arks 
just could not get into the game until 
the close of the half, and then the 
Cats got up a little steam, and tied 
it up at half-time 30-30. 

For the second half Coffeyville got 
oft' to a good start and it looked bad 
for the Tigers. Then it happened. The 
Tigers started to move and never were 
behind after the first five minutes of 
the second period. Ark City looked 
very good the second half, as good as 
they looked any time this year.

The major problem at present is 
finding a band to play for the annual

knows of a good dance band in this 
area or has any suggestions to the 
type of orchestra that should be en-

and contact Dr. Vineyard on a possible 

If there is any problem any student 
or organization wishes to bring before

it should feel free to ask any member 
of the student council to present it, 
and immediate action will be taken. 

Plans are tentative for holding an 
open council meeting in the auditor- 
ium, to give students a chance to voice 
their opinions on matters before the 
council and to bring up any criticisms 
of the student governing body.

Salute to Breeden 

Clifford Breeden, who never seems to 
run out of things to do for ACJC. In 
fact it would be easier to name the 
organizations and activities in which 
he does not participate than those to 
which he does belong. Besides being 
head cheerleader, he is on the annual 
staff, president of the French Club, a 
member of the student council, and 
recently accepted a position on the 
Social Committee. In addition, Cliff 
still finds time to lend a helping hand 
to other school activities from socials 
to elections. 

Tiger. Tales takes its hat off to you, 



A panel of students from Dan Kah- 
ler's rhetoric class led a discussion on 
"School Spirit" in a special assembly 
program, February 8. The panel was 
introduced by Curtis Adams. By 
groups the members discussed five 
points about the school spirit. 

The panel voiced its opinion that 
more variety should be brought into 
the assemblies, members suggesting 
that the language clubs and similar 
groups take charge of some assem- 
blies. It ws also mentioned by some 
members of the panel that possibly 
force could be used to improve atten- 

The panel was of the opinion that 
the members of the student body of 
ACJC were not proud enough of their 
teams, and that the student body was 
failing to carry its part by lack of 
moral support. One member of the 
panel said that non-support of the 
entire student body in attendance at 
pep assemblies was a probable cause 
of lack of spirit. 

The correction suggested by the 
panel was that the student body could 
be a lot more effective if they also 
worked as a team with the cheer- 
leaders and not as a group of individ- 

Members of the panel discussed the 
seeming lack of interest in classrooms, 
the attitude of students in class, and 
the problem of student absences. It 
was suggested that all should try to 
become more interested in classes, 
thereby getting more out of classwork. 
The attitudes in the halls during class 
periods as well as the noise in the 
study hall were discussed, and again 
it was brought out that each student 
could help by taking an active part 
in stopping noise. 

Members of the audience entered 
into the discussion concerning the con- 
dition and appearance of the club- 
rooms. It was proposed that there be 
a supervisor in the clubroom at all

Carpentry Class Happ y to Return? 
Progresses on 
Mouse Project 

Bad weather has failed to slow 
down work on the five-room house 
being built by the junior college car- 
pentry class at Washington and 
Fourth Streets. 

Under the instruction of L. A. 
Chaplin, the seven members of the 
class have been enthusiastic workers. 
The project will be completed by 
March 1 if everything goes smoothly. 
The class had the house enclosed and 
heated before the bad weather set in 
so they were not bothered by the snow. 
The class is now doing the carpentry 
for the plumbing and electrical fix- 

The project will feature built-in 
cabinets and three bedrooms with 
plenty of closet space. It is being 
built to meet FHA loan requirements. 

When the house is completed it will 
be sold at auction to the highest 
bidder. Last year's house was sold to 
Mr. Chaplin and Carl Holman, voca- 
tional education director, who installed 
it on a lot in Arkansas City and 
offered it for sale. The price was 
$4,800. Money received for student- 
built houses goes to the Board of 
Education general fund. 

Student carpenters who are cur- 
rently working on the project include 
Dan LeSturgeon and Gilford Branch, 
in their first semester of carpentry; 
Jim Webb, Wesley Locke, and Ralph 
Palmer, in their second term; and 
Warren Wing and Kenneth "Jeep" 
Czaplinski, who are completing then- 
second full year at the trade training.

times, but this point was challenged, 
and the idea that junior college stu- 
dents should need no such supervision 
brought up and backed. The problem 
of smoking in the clubroom was then 
brought up, and the fact stressed 
that the front entrance of the build- 
ing is littered with the remains left 
by the between-class smokers. 

No problem was solved, but a lot of 
gocd ideas came forth and it did seem 
to effect the school spirit at the games 
the following Friday and Saturday 
nights, panel members believed. They 
said they were well satisfied with stu- 
dent response. 

Panel members besides Adams in- 
cluded Ben Alexander, Les Alexander, 
Leon Fluis, Alvin Lamb, Sonny May- 
nard, Jack Moyer, Bud Shoemaker, 
Larry Sivils, Francis Swanson, Jim 
Webb, and Don Woodward.

CSint Webber 
New Juco 
Football Coach 

Former Ark City high football 
coach Clint Webber has accepted the 
job as juco football coach beginning- 
next season. 

Webber, who coached the high 
school Bulldogs to the state champion- 
ship in 1953, has spent the last two 
seasons at Salina. 

His 1953 record was eight wins, no 
losses, and one tie, and his overall 
high school record is 22 wins, four 
losses, and one tie. Many of the sopho- 
mores on this past season's juco squad 
played for Webber in high school. 

This summer, Webber plans to work 
on his master's degree at Wichita 
University and will teach in the 
junior college next fall. This will be 
his fourth season as a head football 

The "spinning T" with a tight line 
will be used here, which is about the 
same formation he used while coaching 
the Bulldogs. 

Webber succeeds Tommy Steigleder 
who has resigned to take a similar 
position at Hobart, Okla. Steigleder 
has been head football coach here for 
the past two seasons. Webber is 
married and the father of two children, 
Cindy 10, and Clint III 8. They plan 
to move hero this summer. 

Cage Mentor 
Offered Post 
At Wichita U. 

Dan Kahler, ACJC cage mentor has 
been approached by Wichita Univer- 
sity about accepting the head fresh- 
man coaching job at their school. Since 
this news was revealed, there has been 
much speculation as to whether or not 
Coach Kahler would leave Ark City, 
where he has turned out powerful 
quintets each year since becoming 
head coach four years ago. The Tiger 
coach stated in a locker room inter- 
view that he had not as yet given 
much thought to the matter, but was 
considering it seriously. 

"AC has treated me wonderfully 
and when it comes time to make a 
decision, that will enter into the pic- 
ture," said Kahler. Although WU is 
offering more money than he is now 
drawing, he said that this would not 
be the deciding factor. 

As to whether others might influ- 
ence his choice, he said, "It's my 
decision". It was quite evident that 
the outcome of the current basketball 
campaign was uppermost in Kahler's 
mind and that no one, not even he, 
would know his answer to WU until 
sometime later. 

College Halls Filled With 

Beautiful Women; 

College Men Stare and Stare 

College men halted to look twice 
last week. There were a host of pretty 
girls thronging college halls, and they 
were strangers here. 

Eleven high school Chapters of the 
Future Homemakers of America were 
entertained at the Junior College 
building by the Arkansas City Chapter 
on Wednesday, February 8. The event 
was the District Four Election of 
District and State Officers. 

Jeanette Shepherd from Harper was 
elected State President. She will be 
installed on March 10 when the 
Kansas Future Homemakers of 
America hold their State Convention. 

Chapters represented at the meeting 
were Argonia, Caldwell, Winfield, 
Plainview, Belle Plaine, Durby, Mul- 
vane, Harper, Medicine Lodge, South 
Haven and Anthony. 

Members of the Arkansas City 
Senior high chapter, of which Mrs. 
Martha Hansen is sponsor, were 
hostesses for the event. 

Allison Whitaker seems to think 
the difference between disease and

still got a chance. 




Arks Cop 

Arks Win over 
EI Dorado Fives 

The Big Orange and Black won two 
ball games in as many days, last 
week, hanging up victories over El 
Dorado, 93 to 75 and Hutchinson, 81 
to 76. 

In a game Feb. 10, played in Ark 
Ciy, the Arkansas City Junior College 
soundly trounced the El Dorado 
Grizzlies for another conference 
victory. The win gave the Tigers a 6-0 
Western Division record. The Cats 
combined good shooting and defense 
to lead by a score of 45-24 when the 
half-time horn sounded. 

Much of the last half was played by 
Coach Dan Kahler's reserves, as he 
rested his starting five. Jack Jackard 
of El Dorado held the game's scoring 
honors with 31 points. Sonny Maynard 
followed with 21 for the locals. 

In the game of Feb. 11, played at 
Hutchinson, the Tiger squad edged 
out another win over a highly deter- 
mined Hutchinson team which led 
nearly all the way. 

The Tigers came through like 
champions despite the fact that the 
tall Hutch team controlled the boards 
with a total of 47 rebounds to the 
Arks' 33. 

Coach Dan Kahler said he thought 
conditioning was the overwhelming 
factor in the victory. 

Sonny Maynard was top scorer of 
the game with 23 points. Al Schwartz- 
kopf of Hutch was high point man for 
the Blue Dragons, wih 17 points. 


Lady Godiva Brings 
Calamity to Assembly 

Lady Godiva rode again at the pep 
assembly, February 17, and her ride 
was as usual, unusual. It began with 
Betty Lamb, mistress of ceremonies, 
introducing "Tennis-shoe" Benny Ste- 
ele, who gave a comic skit, "What it 
Was Was Basketball" an "Aunt 
Fanny" sketch. 

Following the skit A. E. Maag 
introduced his "1956 Candidates for 
Miss Kansas". They were Miss Garden 
City, portrayed by Bill Robertson; 
Miss Dodge City, or Lady Godiva, by 
Don Shanks; and Miss A. C. Tigress, 
by Tom Davis. Suddenly the auditori- 
um echoed with the gunfire from the 
shootin' iron of "Miss Calamity",

Arkansas City Junior College 
clinched it's fourth consecutive west- 
ern division basketball title by thrash- 
ing the Dodge City Conquistadors 65 
to 35 last Friday night, and Saturday 
night the cagers iced their title by 
the defeat of the Garden City Broncs, 

The Kahlermen put the final fillip 
on their victory cake with a hard-won 
conquest of a determined crew from 
Pratt, 75 to 68, on the Beavers' boards, 
Tuesday night, to compete their first 
all-victorious conference season in the 
school's history. 

The Tigers were solid as a rock in 
their defense Friday, allowing the 
Conqs only 16 points in the entire first 
half and only 19 in the second half. It 
was the lowest score any team has 
ever been held to by Coach Dan 
Kahler's teams. Dodge City was never 
able to get an offensive rolling against 
the local five. 

Only three players were able to 
break into the double figures in the 
scoring column. They were Sonny 
Maynard, with 17 points, Bill Embry 
with 14, and Ken Schlup with 14. 

The battle was even during most of 
the first half but midway in the second 
period the Bengals had the situation 
under control. 

Immediately after the end of 
the contest, Dan Kahler was pre- 
sented with a watch and cited for 
his basketball coaching ability. 
Dan very promptly handed credit 
to his assistants and the teams 
that he had coached the past four 
years. It was the 100th cage vic- 
tory for Kahler against only 19 
defeats in the past four seasons. 
Sonny Maynard was high point man 
for the game with 15 points, Kenny 
Palmer was the top for Garden with 
only 10 points. 

Pratt played a very slow, control 
tyne, of ball during the entire first 
half, leading all the way. The second 
lvdf showed the Tigers' spirit and 
ability as they came through with the 
brand of ball so often seen, to tie it 
up, the seesaw with the Beavers until 
the final minutes of the game, when 
the Arks stretched their lead to win 
over a determined, but disappointed, 
Phatt five. 

Sonny Maynard, Tiger post man, 
took scoring honors as he counted with 
a total of 28 points, 17 of which were 
in the second half.

Jack Rank, One-Man 
Theatre Here Tuesday 

Jack Rank, dramatist known as 
"The Theatre of Jack Rank," will 
present an assembly in the junior 
college auditorium on Tuesday, Febru- 
ary 28. at 9:48. 

Rank presents one of Shakespeare's 
plays, "Macbeth," in amazing com- 
pleteness. This performance is an 
actual stage play with scenery, light- 
ing, costumes, symphonic music, and 
sound effects. Mr. Rank does the 
seemingly impossible by portraying 
all the parts and achieves this feat by 
means of numerous costume changes. 
He leaves the stage speaking the lines 
of one personality and re-enters por- 
traying an entirely different character.

Candy Land 
Theme Set for 


This year's Tigerama promises to be 
one of the"sweetest" in many a moon, 
with the theme of "Candy Land". The 
dance will be held in the junior col- 
lege auditorium from 9 o' clock until 
midnight, April 13. 

Every year the the senior classes 
from the various high schools in this 
area are invited to attend Tigerama. 
ACJC alumni are also welcome to 
attend. It should be noted by Juco 
students and others attending that 
their date must be high school senior 
or older. There will be no exceptions 
to this rule. 

Kay Winegarner and Shirley Reid, 
Social Committee Co-chairmen, re- 
vealed the following tentative plans 
for this year's event. A number of 
selected high school junior girls will be 
in charge of the cloak room and the 
punch bowl. Refreshments may in- 
clude pink lemonade, gingerbread 
men, candy kisses, and various other 
confections. Decorations will be in red 
pink, and white. Entertainment will 
consist of a dance by Clifford Breedon, 
a reading by Burchie Baber, songs by 
the college octette, and a novelty 
dance number by the Five Fizzes. 

As yet, a band has not been hired; 
however, several are under consider- 
ation. The council committee in charge 
of securing a band is comnrised of 
J"fk Anderson, Charles Miller, and 
Phil Logan. 

Kahler Reveals 
Plans for Annual 
All-School Play 

The annual college play will be 
presented this year on the evening of 
May 11, it has been announced by 
Dan Kahler. 

Six plays are under consideration 
and were mentioned as possibilities 
by Kahler. These include two melo- 
dramas, "Dragnet", and "War of the 
Worlds"; a comedy farce, "Bern- 
ardine"; a pair of comedies, "Brighten 
the Corner", and "Grammercy Ghost"; 
and a drama, "Detective Story". The 
director is also "toying" with the idea 
of staging a Shakespearean play. He 
stated that he was limited in his 
productions because of lighting facil- 

Tryouts for the all-school play will 
begin the first week in April. They 
will consist of reading and pantomime. 
Everyone should feel free to try out 
for the cast, as previous experience 
is not required, Kahler pointed out. 
The cast will, if at all possible, be 
large, ranging from eight to twenty- 
eight characters with about the same 
number of males as females. Rehear- 
sals will begin April 9, and last for 
rive weeks. 

Play it Loose, Kahler Says 

Kahler's advice to those who might 
be planning to go out for the play was 
that they read as many plays as 
possible between now and time for the 

"Come in here with plenty of 'aban- 
don'", were Kahler's words to pros- 
pective actors and actresses. 

In addition to the cast, the produc- 
tion will require a curtain man, a 
lighting technician, two property 
managers, a wardrobe manager, and a 
publicity manager. Wes Jordan will be 
stage manager. 

Mrs. Harry Oldroyd spoke to 
F. T. A. members Monday night at

Student Council President 

Congratulations to the 1955-56 bas- 
ketball squad for their fine record and 
undefeated drive to the fourth con- 
secutive Western Division Conference 
championship. The student body is 
backing you all the way. Best of luck 
in the regional tourney! 

Plans for Tigerama are shaping up 
daily with a number of bands having 
contacted the student council. Remem- 
ber, Tigerama will be the evening of 
April 13. The Social Committee will 
appreciate any suggestions of help in 
planning this year's Tigerama. Now 
is the time to arrange your date. 

Before any new equipment will be 
purchased for the clubroom, better 
care should be shown for the facilities 
we now have. Many articles have been 
destroyed and broken; there is no rea- 
son for this. Let's see if we can be 
more careful in the future. 

School spirit in the past few weeks 
has been quite evident through stu- 
dent participation in assemblies, pep 
rallies, and at basketball games. Let's 
stay behind our team, win or lose. 

I would like to welcome two new SC 
members who are now representing 
the Sophomore class as represent- 
atives at large, replacing Charlie 
Porter, and Barbara Foster. They are 
Jack DeFrees and Paula Craig.

In the halls of Juco roams a tall, 
good looking 5 foot, 11 inch blue-eyed 
boy who hails from Winfield. He is 
majoring in architectural engineering, 
and after his completion of two years 
here in junior college he plans to 
attend K. U. He is none other than 
Jim Fergus, better known to us as 

Jim says he came here because he 
had heard so much praise given to the 
junior college math department. 

Like a good many of us, he enjoys 
all sports, especially basketball, and 
next to sports he likes to write poetry. 
Some of his hobbies are collecting 
match books and listening to popular 
and semi-classical music. 

He also tells us he has a good 
motto: "Live to eat intsead of eating 
to live." 

Leon Turner and Gerald Mullett, 
Naval Aviation Cadets, have been 
transferred to Pensacola, Fla., from 
the Naval Air Station at Olathe, for 
the 18-week flight training program. 
Both boys were graduated from Junior 
College last spring. 

The Miss Co-Ed of the week is none 
other than Miss Betty Derr, the nice- 
looking blond with the pretty blue 
eyes who drives in daily from south 
of Winfield to attend classes here. 

Betty's school life runs something 
like this: ethics, rhetoric, history of 
religion, chemistry, and American 
history. Betty says her best liked class 
is taught by Dan Stark, and this 
leads us to believe that it is none other 
than chemistry. 

Betty was graduated from Winfield 
high school in 1955 and is now a 
charming 18 years of age. Her 
pastime is like that of many other 
girls her age, and older. She likes to

endence along with being assistant 
football coach and tennis coach, and 
will teach English in the high school. 
At Independence, he will compete next 
season against Arkansas City junior 
college in non-conference competition. 

Bob was active in Air Force sports 
and was a leading factor in bringing 
a number of athletes to A.C. such as 
Tony Rendulich, "Cy" Seitchick, and 
Charles Elswick.

The boys have the flooring in and 
now have only the cabinets to make, 
the casings to put in and some doors 
to hang. These things will not take 
long and when they are done the new 
house will be complete. 

The whole carpentry class went to 
Wichita Feb. 22 to attend the Home 
Show. They saw all the latest equup- 
ment used in the homes and shops. 
The class enjoyed it and thought it a 
profitable afternoon well spent. The 
transportation was furnished by the 
school. The class rode in the school's 
carry-all and ate lunch on the road.

Promise of effective replacements 
for graduating cagers appears bright 
in the light of the season record of the 
Ark junior varsity players. 

February marked the end of a 
highly successful season for the Tiger 
"B" squad. They completed their 
season by posting a record of ten

Kahler Interviewed 
For Basketball Job 
At Colorado U. 

Arkansas City's juco coach Dan 
Kahler made a fast trip to Kansas 
City last week where he was inter- 
viewed for the post of head cage 
coach at the University of Colorado. 

Kahler said that he was highly 
pleased to have been interviewed for 
the job by Colorado Athletic Director 
Harry G. Carlson. Colorado's present 
coach, Bebe Lee, will vacate his post 
at the end of the current season. 

Several offers have been received 
this season by the highly successful 
coach of the team now rated number 
1 juco team in the nation, but Kahler 
has declined to make a decision on 
any offer until the end of the present 

the deadline, which is March 25, A. E. 
Maag, sponsor, has reported. 

Track, tennis, and basketball pic- 
tures are yet to be taken. Student 
Council, Tiger Tales staff, and Tiger 
staff pictures were taken February -28. 




Arks Begin 
Regional Play 
At Dodge City 

This morning at 8 a. m., when a 
cheering group of students gathered 
to send them off, Coach Dan Kahler 
and his Tigers had left for Dodge City, 
for the Region VI tournament, at 7:30. 

This evening at 9:15 p. m. the 
Tigers, who are top seeded, will be 
matched against the El Dorado Griz- 
zlies, who have been twice defeated 
by the local five. It will be well to re- 
member, though, that the Grizzlies 
twice downed the Eastern Division 
champs of Iola, which shows that the 
Grizzlie five at times have what it 
takes to down good teams. 

First round play last night found 
Hutchinson meeting Pratt and Dodge 
battling McPherson. Tonight Garden 
City plays Northern Oklahoma of Ton- 
kawa, with the Tigers-Bear scrap the 
nightcap game of the evening. 

Those making the trip are Dan 
Kahler, head coach, Tom Steiglededer, 
assistant coach, Sonny Maynard, Birk- 
lie Perico, Charles Porter, Bill Embry, 
Jim Sullivan, Charles Elswick, Bill 
Clarahan, Del Smith, Ray Hernandez, 
Don Shanks, Bill Austen, head charter, 
and Wes Jordan student manager.

Calls are out by Coaches Tommy 
Steigleder and Raymond Judd for the 
spring sports of track and tennis. 

Coach Steigleder states that several 
boys have reported to him and indi- 
cated that they were going to try out 
for track. He also says there will be 
a meeting for all potential tracksters 
right after the basketball season is 
over. At this meeting they will try to 
make out a schedule for the coming 

The tennis team had its first 
scheduled practice March 5. Several 
boys attended the first practice ses- 
sion. Among them were Ronnie 
Houdek, Jim Carter, Glenn (Hammy) 
Smith, Duane Houdek, Jack Anderson, 
Rodney Starkey, Phil Logan, and Jim 

The nucleus of the net team will be 
Ronnie Houdek, a letterman from last 
year; Jim Carter, a nationally ranked 
singles player, and Glenn (Hammy) 
Smith. The tennis team has a fairly 
large tentative schedule but Coach 
Judd predicts a "rough time" in store 
for all opponents of the defending 
champion Tigers.

Eagles Are 
Victims in 




The Ark City Tigers won their final 
game of the regular season by down- 
ing the St. John's Eagles, 77 to 61. 
This brought the Tigers a final record 
of 23 wins and 2 losses to junior col- 
lege teams. 

The game got off to a very fast 
start with the score changing hands 
several times in the first quarter of 
the game. Ark City finally got a small 
lead and managed to keep it to end 
the half 45 to 36. 

The rest of the game was all Ark 
City but for short intervals when the 
Johnnies fought for two ties. Coach 
Kahler played the bench a great deal 
in order to let all of his eight sopho- 
mores get into the final game of the 
regular season. High point man for 
Ark City was Maynard with 20 points, 
and Hartman led St. Johns's with 26. 

Red Devils Fail in 
Bid to Upset Tigers 

The Tigers treked to Iola on Feb. 
24, to up-end the upset-minded East- 
ern Division Champs, the Iola Red 
Devils, 85 to 76. 

It was one of the Bengals' toughest 
encounters to date. With the lead 
changing hands many times in both 
the first and second halves the Arkats 
managed a 39-38 half-time advantage. 
During the closing one and a quarter 
minutes of the contest the Cats led 
by only two points, but caught fire in 
the remaining seconds to count seven 
more points. 

Berklie Perico played his finest 
game of the season as he collected 11 
field goals and 6 free throws to take 
the game scoring honors with 28 
points. He was also the top reboimder 
with 25. Sonny Maynard, the leading 
Tiger scorer for the season, hit 16 
free throws and 4 fielders for a 24- 
point total. 

The Bengals will again travel to 
Iola March 13 for the initial game of 
the state play-off and on March 16, 
Tola will once more return to the 
Tiber's court.

Pedro Caudillo's Band has been 
hired to play for the Tigerama Dance, 
April 13. Pedro, who hails from 
Wellington, Kansas, and his eight 
piece band have made quite a reputa- 
tion for themselves in this part of the 
country. The aggregation specializes 
in South American music. And boys, 
remember it takes two to tango, so 
get that date before it's too late to 
rate! (Note to girls: It's leap year; 
have you leapt?) 

I would also like to thank the local

9t'& A Qact 

It's a fact that the Tigers lost to 
Garden City in the semi-finals of the 
Region IV tourney, but it is also a 
fact that twice previously the Bengals 
downed the Broncs by fair margins. 
Fact also finds the Arkcats having 
been rated Number 1 juco quintet 
in the nation for the season. 

While we are mentioning facts let's 
also include those that the three teams 
representing Kansas in the National 
Junior College Tournament have been 
twice each victims of the Tieer growl. 
The Tigers went through their divi- 
sion of play with a 10-0 record and 
that is another fact — a fact that no 
other juco team in the state can match. 
Fact show that the record of the 
Bengals is 20 and 3. This fact tops the

On Cash Register — No Cash 

The distributive education and trade 
and industry classes had a demon- 
stration on the modern cash register, 
Friday, by Ed Dorsett, representative 
from the Wichita Branch Office of the 
National Cash Register Co. 

Dorsett talked on the values of a 
modern cash register in the field of 
selling. Included, he said, are protec- 
tion of a business and of the consu- 
mer, and record keeping in that the 
register shows the amount of each 
item purchased. It also makes a re- 
cord of the business income, providing 
means of business analysis. 

"The class appreciates the gener- 
osity of the Wichita Office in giving 
the demonstration and leaving the 
machine for a week to give the stu- 
dents an opportunity to operate a 
modern cash register", Carl Holman, 
trade and industry instructor said. 

Lit Class Calls for 
Expert Assistance 

Did you see any children running 
in and out of room 104? Did you 
wonder if freshmen were getting 
younger? The children were in there 
to keep the children's literatures stu- 
dents. The idea was for the college 
students to tell the children stories 
and to see how the youngsters re- 

Both the children and college stu- 
dents enjoyed themselves. Miss Mary 
M. Williams, instructor, repoi'ted. 

The children were Kathy Moore, 
Bernice Weaver, Mark and Wayne 
Jackson, and Cris Crowley.

Hernandez Star of 'Picnic* 
To Us Local Yokels 

Local movie fans were pleasantly 
surprised to see Ray Hernandez, pop- 
ular ACJC sophomore, in the motion 
picture "Picnic". Ray, who was an 
"extra" in the cast, could be seen in a 
number of scenes throughout the 
Columbia Picture movie, which has 
been nominated for sevei*al Academy 

Ray says that he was just lucky to 
be hired by Josh Logan, director of 
the movie, while the picture was be- 
ing filmed in Hutchinson. Sequences 
of the movie were also shot in the 
Kansas towns if Salina, Halstead, 
Sterling, and Nickerson. 

The setting for "Picnic" was chosen 
because the story centers around an 
oldtime Independence, Kansas, cel- 
ebration called Neewollah (that's 
Halloween spelled backward). In the 
story William Holden, who is a tramp, 
comes to the celebration to see his 
buddy (Cliff Robertson) and steals his 
girl (Kim Novak) away from him. 

Ever wonder what it would be like 
to rub elbows with movie stars? Ray 
described them as very congenial and 
interesting people. He attended sever- 
al big parties given by the stars and 
became a very good friend of Cliff 
Robertson, who co-starred in the 
movie. The other members of the cast 
were Susan Strasberg, Rosalind Rus- 
sell, and Verna Felton. 

William Holden was, according to 
Ray, "just a friendly, common, every- 
day sort of guy". He was surprised 
that Holden and Kim Novak did not 
require a lot of makeup, but were just 

An interesting note was the fact 
that a large part of the movie was 
shot at night so that the lighting 
could be completely regulated. 

In summing up his experiences of 
last summer, Ray had this to say, "I 
had more fun than I'd had in all my 
life last summer being in that movie". 

Tiger Tales Travels 
Over Wide Area 
To Alumni, Schools 

The Tiger Tales travels far and 
wide in its efforts to keep the former 
students and surrounding schools in- 
formed on the latest school news. 

The mailing circulation stands be- 
tween 110 and 120 addresses per is- 
sue. In the mailing list there are in- 
dividuals and school publications in 11 
states other than Kansas including, 
Missouri, Illinois, California, Oklaho- 
ma, Nebraska, Washington, Arkansas, 
Louisiana, Indiana, New Mexico, and 
Iowa. There are 82 Kansas addresses 
but only 20 of them are in Ark City. 

In 1954 The Tiger published a spec- 
ial edition for Alumni. Over 500 copies 
were sent out to them in an effort to 
promote the Alumni Association. 

Lois Marshall, our circulation man- 
ager says that the Tiger Tales will be 
sent to former students who request it 
and send in their addresses. Those 
former students who have been re- 
ceiving- the paper, but have moved 
should notify the circulation manager 
of their new address. They will not 
receive any more issues until this has 
been done.

Iola five for the Kansas Junior Col- 
lege Crown.

half to produce 65 points to the Red

Last Thursday there were a lot of 
comments made and it was not new to 
see and hear groups of students dis- 
cussing the grades handed out. Such 
common rearks as "I got a B-plus 
while you only got a B-minus. Well, 
take it from here, you really both got 
the same grades except on that 3x5 
card you took home. You see when 
grades go on the transcript, and that's 
what counts, all pluses and minuses 
are excluded. 

And if you feel that you didn't get 
the grades you earned, don't really 
worry about it, for if you learned 
what you were to learn you have ob- 
tained your objective and that's what 
really counts.

Bracketed in the Same Regional 

Next Year by NJCAA 

Directors of the National Junior 
College Athletic Association voted to 
assign a regional basketball tourna- 
ment to Lawton next year. 

Action on a recommendation by the 
NJCAA's redisricting committee, 
headed by Eugene Keefe of West- 
chester college, White Plains, New 
York, the 16 regions were slightly 
revised and region No. 2 was assigned 
to Lawton.

region, NJCAA directors disolved a 
region formerly held in Missouri. 
Under the new setup, Hannibal-La- 
Grange and Morberly, a pair of peren- 
nial powers in the natioal tournament 
here, will be bracketed in the same 
regional tournament. In past years, 
the two schools have competed in di- 
ferent regions. 

There are 16 regions across the 
country, with the winner of each 
regional qualifying for the national 
JUCO cage tournament slated in 
Hutchinson, Kans., each March.

Better Individuals 
Make Better World 
Says Dr. Magoun 

Yesterday in the year's final lyceum 
Dr. F. Alexander Magoun presented 
an enlighting lecture on human re- 
lations. In his blackboard diagrams, 
humor, and simple words, which he is 
known for, the attending students 
found a challenge to smoother and 
happier personal relationships. 

Dr. Magoun, who is president of 
Human Relations, Inc., believes that 
the only way to have a better world 
is to have better individuals in it. 
This in turn, requires clear under- 
standing of the emotions which 
govern behavior, and what to do about 

The lyceum was opened and the 
speaker introduced by Don Shanks, of 
A.. E. Maag's afternoon speech class. 
In concluding Don thanked Dr. 
Magoun and dismissed the students 
to their next class.

Today finds us with only five weeks 
of the current semester remaining. 
Then and only then, vacation starts, 
but let's wait until then. With this 
time of the year comes spring fever, 
short sleeves, convei-ted convertibles 
and that lazy listless feeling. We 
find also almost everyone tending to 
let thirgs lapse, and studies drag. 
This by no means is good; to be exact, 
it should be just the opposite. We 
should at this time be like the miler 
and put on that final burst of speed, 
and a? the miler we should not look 
back, but look only toward the wire 
and the finish. 

If we keep in mind the goal that 
lies ahead of us one, two, or three 
years in the future, remembering as 
long as we can see the final goal and 
it is something we truly want, there 
should be no trouble giving this last 
five weeks all that is required of us 
to do our very best in all the subjects 
in which we are enrolled.

Planning to attend the Ark City 
junior college is a high school senior, 
Eleanor Louise Reynolds. She is 5 
feet three inches tall, 18 years of age, 
has dark blonds hair, green eyes, and 
Iras a very pleasing personality. 

''It is close to home, and it is less 
expensive than a four year college," 
she gives as her reasons for attending 
junior college. 

She plans to take a business course 
to prepare for secretarial work. She 
chose this course because she likes 
and is interested in that line of work. 

Eleanor likes popular music, fried 
chicken is her favorite food, and pink 
is her favorite color.

ing Station where he has been sta- 
tioned. Ke expects to be sent to sea 
duty after his leave. David was ex- 
pected home for Easter, but someone 
fouled up the pay roster. 

It happens every spring. What? 


et M*.. £d 


Come next semester you are likely 
to meet up with a brown-haired six 
footer who plans to major in math, 
and who says he hopes someday to be 
a geologist. 

The prospective junior college fresh- 
man is Kenneth McNutt. At the 
present time, psychology is his most 
liked subject. Kenny is very active in 
the Hi-Y Club and is also a member 
of the Lettermens Club, as result of 
gridiron activities. 

It seems he is a happy-go-lucky 
kid, with no pet peeves, but he loves 
steak and the color blue. In this guy's 
opinion, Elvis Presley is "TOPS". 

Why, its spring of course! There's 
birds and bees and all that sort of 
thing, you know. John's in love with 
Mary but Mary loves George; George 
is crazy about Sue, who is in love with 
Eddie, but Eddie's going 1 steady with 
Jane, who really loves John. You see, 
it happens every Spring.

Club Raises Money 
During Past Year 

The Business Education club has 
staged various fund raising projects 
during the past year. 

Among these projects wei^e the 
programs for the high school regional 
tournament. Club members sold adver- 
tising for the eight page programs, 
which included pictures of the part- 
icipating teams, and were on hand at 
the games to sell the souvenir pro- 
grams to the fans. 

The sale of tickets to a local movie 
supplied additional funds for the trea- 
sury. Another movie ticket sale is 
being planned by the club. 

Seven delegates were sent by the 
club to the state convention at 
Emporia last February. 

Plans are now in progress for the 
annual Employer-Employee banquet 
at which time the club members honor 
their employers at a dinner to show 
their appreciation for the financial 
help and training given them during 
the past year. 


Tiger Tales Carries 
News 7,000 Miles 
To Former Student 

From Leon Peters, student during 
1952-54, and former Tiger Tales sports 
editor, who is now with the Air Force 
in Japan, comes the word that he is 
happy to be receiving "Tiger Tales" 
and thinks "it is a wonderful paper." 

"I receive the paper about a month 
after it has been published, but I 
still enjoy reading it and seeing just 
what has happened around ACJC. I 
wish there was some way that I could 
get the paper a little quicker and then 
I wouldn't be so far behind as to just 
what has happened," Leon writes. 

"I am still trying to find out how 
the Tigers came out in the Regional 
Tournament at Dodge City, and also 
how they came out in the National 
Tournament at Hutchinson providing 
they won at Dodge City. It seems like 
I can never find out the things that I 
want until it is too late. Another thing 
that I am wondering about is how the 
team came out in the State play-offs 
against Iola. 

"Even though I am approximately 
7,000 miles away from home and the 
school, I still back the team and I 
would like for all of the fellows of 
the 1950 team to know that I take mv 

Geology Trip; 
Teacher Lost 

The geology class, in their study of 
rocks, has taken three field trips thus 
far this year. The purpose of these 
trips is to fund and identify different 
kinds of rocks and to determine their 

During the trip taken on April 5, 
the class went out to the railroad 
crossing at Radio Lane to seek in the 
ballast some different kinds of rocks 
not ordinarily found in Kansas. 

They found several different kinds 
but they could not find the teacher to 
check their finds. The students had all 
driven off and left the instructor in 
her classroom. 

"I would like to go along the next 
time," says Miss Gaye Iden.

Editor Hockenbury 
Reports Tiger Finished 

The Tiger is now complete and in 
Oklahoma City for printing, reports 
faculty adviser A. E. Maag. Mr. Maag 
and his wife sported out in their new 
car taking the remaining bit of copy 
to the city. The finishing touches will 
be put on some time in the near 
future, when the printing company 
calls- for proofreaders, who will jour- 
ney down to give the final approval. 

Three students, Betty Derr, Jorene 
Hockenbury, and ack DeFreese, ac- 
companied by Mr. Maag, will be pre- 
sent when the go-ahead is given. 

This year's Tiger promises to be 
one of the best ever, and though it 
was a great deal of work for all the 
Tiger staff, and they are glad it's 
done, all feel that it was worth their 
time and effort, Editor Hockenbury 
says.' • '.'•,•■'

ested also in his young nephew and

the couple. Having money, he wants 
to make the young people comfort- 
able, but is especially concerned in 
giving them an incentive to raise a 
family. When he mistakenly identi-

the young people, as his nephew's 
wife, a series of misadventures follow.

Veteran College A 
Instructors Plan 


Arkansas City junior college will 
loose two instructors next year due to 
retirement. Carl Holman and W. A. 
Sneller will retire at the end of the 
present term. 

Holman, a teacher for 44 years, 32 
of which were spent in Arkansas City, 
will retire at the end of the current 
school year. For many years he has 
been director of industrial and voca- 
tional training. 

Before he came to the Arkansas 
City schools, Holman taught for one 
year at Valverd school, south of Ox- 
ford, two years at Great Bend, four 
years at Wellington, and five years at 
El Dorado. He also coached football 
and track while at Great Bend and 
Y\ r ellington. 

Mr. Holman plans to do some tra- 
veling to Washington State and 
Florida, and to catch up on his fish- 
ing. Although he is retiring from 
teaching, he will be kept busy at home 
with his hobby of agriculture, for, 
he says, "I like to see things grow." 
Holman is well known for raising 
fine crops of watermelons. 

A remarkable record of attendance 
has been compiled by Mr. Holman. He 
has been absent only five days in 44 
years due to illness. 

"I don't intend to hibernate," said 
Holman, "but I will miss the as- 
sociations with fellow teachers." 

Seeing former students doing well 
in business bring back pleasant mem- 
ories to Holman who had three of his 
four children graduate from Arkansas 
City junior college. 

Mr. Sneller, who has taught indust- 
rial arts and machine shop in the 
junior college for 32 years, will also 
retire at the close of this school year. 

Two years ago, Sneller was award- 
ed a junior college varsity letter in 
basketball for his long service as 

Sneller will continue in his business, 
"Hrnne Comfort and Protection Co.," 
installing awnings, storm doors, Ven- 
etian blinds, and fences. 

All four of Sneller's children are 
graduates of juco and his son Bob will 
be head basketball coach at Indepen- 
dence junior college next year. 

Last week's near-hurricane winds 
were instrumental in getting new 
rlnss for the doors punctured by van- 
dal's BB shot last fall. Under the 
strain of a sharp tug against the wind 
the glass in the door of a south en- 
trance shattered. This week workmen
